Correlations in Nonequilibrium Steady States

  title={Correlations in Nonequilibrium Steady States},
  author={Kevin K. Lin and Lai-Sang Young},
  journal={arXiv: Statistical Mechanics},
We present the results of a detailed study of energy correlations at steady state for a 1-D model of coupled energy and matter transport. Our aim is to discover -- via theoretical arguments, conjectures, and numerical simulations -- how spatial covariances scale with system size, their relations to local thermodynamic quantities, and the randomizing effects of heat baths. Among our findings are that short-range covariances respond quadratically to local temperature gradients, and long-range… 


Fluctuations in stationary nonequilibrium states of irreversible processes.
We formulate a dynamical fluctuation theory for stationary nonequilibrium states (SNS) which covers situations in a nonlinear hydrodynamic regime and is verified explicitly in stochastic models of
Memory Effects in Nonequilibrium Transport for Deterministic Hamiltonian Systems
We consider nonequilibrium transport in a simple chain of identical mechanical cells in which particles move around. In each cell, there is a rotating disc, with which these particles interact, and
Coupled normal heat and matter transport in a simple model system.
We introduce the first simple mechanical system that shows fully realistic transport behavior while still being exactly solvable at the level of equilibrium statistical mechanics. The system is a
Macroscopic Fluctuation Theory for Stationary Non-Equilibrium States
We formulate a dynamical fluctuation theory for stationary non-equilibrium states (SNS) which is tested explicitly in stochastic models of interacting particles. In our theory a crucial role is

Large Deviation of the Density Profile in the Steady State of the Open Symmetric Simple Exclusion Process
AbstractWe consider an open one dimensional lattice gas on sites i=1,..., N, with particles jumping independently with rate 1 to neighboring interior empty sites, the simple symmetric exclusion
