Jaynes’ information theory formalism of statistical mechanics is applied to the stationary states of open, non-equilibrium systems. First, it is shown that the probability distribution p of the underlying microscopic phase space trajectories over a time interval of length τ satisfies p ∝ exp(τσ /2kB) where σ is the time-averaged rate of entropy production of . Three consequences of this result are then derived: (1) the fluctuation theorem, which describes the exponentially declining probability… CONTINUE READING
