For current fluctuations in nonequilibrium steady states of Markovian processes, we derive four different universal bounds valid beyond the Gaussian regime. Different variants of these bounds applyâ€¦ (More)

Heat engines should ideally have large power output, operate close to Carnot efficiency and show constancy, i.e., exhibit only small fluctuations in this output. For steady-state heat engines, drivenâ€¦ (More)

The thermodynamic uncertainty relation provides an inequality relating any mean current, the associated dispersion and the entropy production rate for arbitrary nonequilibrium steady states. Applyingâ€¦ (More)

Employing large deviation theory, we explore current fluctuations of underdamped Brownian motion for the paradigmatic example of a single particle in a one-dimensional periodic potential. Twoâ€¦ (More)

By extending large deviation theory to sub-exponential contributions, we determine the fine structure in the probability distribution of the observable displacement of a bead coupled to a molecularâ€¦ (More)

For fluctuating currents in nonequilibrium steady states, the recently discovered thermodynamic uncertainty relation expresses a fundamental relation between their variance and the overall entropicâ€¦ (More)
