Stochastic processes with temporal delay play an important role in science and engineering whenever finite speeds of signal transmission and processing occur. However, an exact mathematical analysis of their dynamics and thermodynamics is available for linear models only. We introduce a class of stochastic delay processes with nonlinear time-local forces and linear time-delayed forces that obey fluctuation theorems and converge to a Boltzmann equilibrium at long times. From the point of view of… 

Optimal finite-time heat engines under constrained control

We optimize finite-time stochastic heat engines with a periodically scaled Hamiltonian under experimentally motivated constraints on the bath temperature T and the scaling parameter λ . We present a

Brownian molecules formed by delayed harmonic interactions

A time-delayed response of individual living organisms to information exchanged within flocks or swarms leads to the emergence of complex collective behaviors. A recent experimental setup by (Khadka

Stochastic Thermodynamics

Standard thermodynamics pertains to a system in equilibrium. The meaning of equilibrium is that all fields such as temperature, pressure, magnetic, electric fields, etc., are held fixed, and the

Stochastic SIRC epidemic model with time-delay for COVID-19

It is shown that white noise plays an important part in controlling the spread of the disease and when the white noise is relatively large, the infectious diseases will become extinct.

Formation of stable and responsive collective states in suspensions of active colloids

Experimental evidence is provided by investigating the stability of swirls formed by light-responsive active colloids which adjust their individual motion to positions and orientations of neighbours to support the idea of system-independent organisation principles of collective states.

Active Brownian heat engines

When do non-equilibrium forms of disordered energy qualify as heat? \textcolor{blue}{We address this question in the context of cyclically operating heat engines in contact with a non-equilibrium

The 2020 motile active matter roadmap

The 2020 motile active matter roadmap of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter addresses the current state of the art of the field and provides guidance for both students as well as established scientists in their efforts to advance this fascinating area.

Nonlinear dynamics of delay systems: an overview

New fundamental results were obtained especially for systems with time-varying delay and state-dependent delay and for delay system with noise, which do often appear in real systems in engineering and nature.

Feedback and delays in neurological diseases: A modeling study using gynamical systems

A preliminary model is proposed to describe the oscillations observed in control subjects and in patients with neurological diseases during the performance of a simple compensatory tracking task and analytically determines the influence in the model of each of these delays on the stability of the finger position.
