Stochastic Thermodynamics: Experiment and Theory

International Workshop
10 - 14 September 2018

Stochastic thermodynamics describes the
fluctuating behaviour of small systems driven
out of equilibrium. Recent experimental advances
have led to precise experimental tests of
fluctuation relations and other novel universal
thermodynamic features at the mesoscale. This
workshop will bring together experimentalists
and theorists to discuss the state of the art and
future directions of this emerging, evolving

Topics include

    • Fluctuation relations
    • Uncertainty relations
    • Large deviations and extreme values
    • New universal properties
    • Small engines
    • Optimal thermodynamic protocols
    • Information thermodynamics
    • Thermodynamics of living systems
