Thermodynamic length is a path function that generalizes the notion of length to the surface of thermodynamic states. Here, we show how to measure thermodynamic length in far-from-equilibrium experiments using the work fluctuation relations. For these microscopic systems, it proves necessary to define the thermodynamic length in terms of the Fisher information. Consequently, the thermodynamic length can be directly related to the magnitude of fluctuations about equilibrium. The work fluctuation… Expand
Thermodynamic length for far-from-equilibrium quantum systems.
TLDR
A lower bound on the entropy production is derived in terms of the Bures angle between the nonequilibrium and the corresponding equilibrium state of the system, which defines a thermodynamic length valid arbitrarily far from equilibrium. Expand
Thermodynamic length in open quantum systems
The dissipation generated during a quasistatic thermodynamic process can be characterised by introducing a metric on the space of Gibbs states, in such a way that minimally-dissipating protocolsExpand
The geometry of chance : on the theory of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics
The study of Statistical Mechanics goes back to the 1800s and the work of Boltzmann. Since that time the field has been divided into equilibrium theory and non-equilibrium theory, with the formersExpand
Investigation of the statistical distance to reach stationary distributions
Abstract The thermodynamic length gives a Riemannian metric to a system's phase space. Here we extend the traditional thermodynamic length to the information length ( L ) out of equilibrium andExpand
Thermodynamic metrics and optimal paths.
TLDR
A friction tensor is derived that induces a Riemannian manifold on the space of thermodynamic states that controls the dissipation of finite-time transformations, and bestows optimal protocols with many useful properties within the linear-response regime. Expand

TLDR
Efficiency and, in particular, efficiency at maximum power can be discussed systematically beyond the linear response regime for two classes of molecular machines, isothermal ones such as molecular motors, and heat engines such as thermoelectric devices, using a common framework based on a cycle decomposition of entropy production. Expand
Current trends in finite-time thermodynamics.
TLDR
Finite-time thermodynamics is to place the system of interest in contact with a time-varying environment which will coax the system along the desired path, much like guiding a horse along by waving a carrot in front of it. Expand
Using nonequilibrium thermodynamics to optimize the cooling of a dilute atomic gas
Optimizing thermodynamic processes far from equilibrium is a challenge. We report the experimental optimization of cooling and thermalization of a gas of few noninteracting Cesium atoms confined in aExpand
Combining path-breaking with bidirectional nonequilibrium simulations to improve efficiency in free energy calculations.
TLDR
By using path-breaking in the test system, the computer time needed to carry out a series of nonequilibrium trajectories can be reduced up to a factor 4, with marginal loss of accuracy in free energy estimates. Expand
Geometric and Combinatorial Aspects of NonEquilibrium Statistical Mechanics
Non-Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics is a broad subject. Grossly speaking, it deals with systems which have not yet relaxed to an equilibrium state, or else with systems which are in a steadyExpand

The implementation and test of Jarzynski's equality provides the first example of its use as a bridge between the statistical mechanics of equilibrium and nonequilibrium systems, and extends the thermodynamic analysis of single molecule manipulation data beyond the context of equilibrium experiments.

It is shown that the Crooks fluctuation theorem can be used to determine folding free energies for folding and unfolding processes occurring in weak as well as strong nonequilibrium regimes, thereby providing a test of its validity under such conditions. Expand
