Statistical Mechanics Seminar: Asymptotic statistics of fluctuating currents in stochastic thermodynamics

Seminar | May 29 | 2-4 p.m. | 775B Tan Hall

Bernhard Altaner, Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization

College of Chemistry

Small systems in thermodynamic environments are strongly affected by
thermal noise. Recently, novel experimental techniques and large-scale
computer simulations have enabled the study of the molecular machinery
of living cells. Molecular motors provide an archetypal example for a
small system far from equilibrium, where fluctuations can not be
neglected. Stochastic Thermodynamics uses...   More >
