Title: Fluctuation-dissipation relations
Abstract:
Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics aims at a statistical description
of closed and open dynamical systems of large dimension.
Fluctuation relations are robust identities concerning the statistics
of entropy production or performed work in such systems.
They are expected to hold arbitrarily far from thermal equilibrium.
The lectures present a self contained mathematical introduction to
fluctuation relations in the setup of finite-dimensional
diffusion processes.
