Statistical Mechanics of Learning

- A. Engel, C. V. D. Broeck
- Computer Science
- 2 April 2001

From the Publisher:
The effort to build machines that are able to learn and undertake tasks such as datamining, image processing and pattern recognition has led to the development of artificial… Expand

Virgo: a laser interferometer to detect gravitational waves

- T. Accadia, F. Acernese, +333 authors Zhongqi Zhang
- Physics
- 29 March 2012

This paper presents a complete description of Virgo, the French-Italian gravitational wave detector. The detector, built at Cascina, near Pisa (Italy), is a very large Michelson interferometer, with… Expand

Second law and Landauer principle far from equilibrium

- M. Esposito, C. V. D. Broeck
- Physics
- 27 April 2011

The amount of work that is needed to change the state of a system in contact with a heat bath between specified initial and final nonequilibrium states is at least equal to the corresponding… Expand

Ensemble and trajectory thermodynamics: A brief introduction

- C. V. D. Broeck, M. Esposito
- Physics, Mathematics
- 7 March 2014

We revisit stochastic thermodynamics for a system with discrete energy states in contact with a heat and particle reservoir.

Entropy production as correlation between system and reservoir

- M. Esposito, K. Lindenberg, C. V. D. Broeck
- Physics
- 7 August 2009

We derive an exact (classical and quantum) expression for the entropy production of a finite system placed in contact with one or several finite reservoirs, each of which is initially described by a… Expand

Stochastic thermodynamics: A brief introduction

- C. V. D. Broeck
- Computer Science
- 2013

— The main purpose of statistical mechanics is to give a microscopic derivation of macroscopic laws, including in particular the celebrated second law of thermodynamics. In recent years, there have… Expand

Nonequilibrium phase transitions induced by multiplicative noise

- C. V. D. Broeck, J. M. Parrondo, R. Toral, R. Kawai
- Physics
- 1 April 1997

We review a mean-field analysis and give the details of a correlation function approach for spatially distributed systems subject to multiplicative noise, white in space and time. We confirm the… Expand

Finite-time thermodynamics for a single-level quantum dot

- M. Esposito, R. Kawai, K. Lindenberg, C. V. D. Broeck
- Physics
- 21 September 2009

We investigate the finite-time thermodynamics of a single-level fermion system interacting with a particle reservoir. The optimal protocol to extract the maximum work from the system when moving the… Expand

Entropy production and the arrow of time

- J. M. Parrondo, C. V. D. Broeck, R. Kawai
- Physics
- 9 April 2009

We present an exact relationship between the entropy production and the distinguishability of a process from its time-reverse, quantified by the relative entropy between forward and backward states.… Expand
