We introduce from an experimental point of view the main conc epts of fluctuation theorems for work, heat and entropy production in out of equilibrium systems. W e will discuss the important difference between the applications of these concepts to stochastic systems an d to a second class of systems (chaotic systems) where the fluctuations are induced either by chaotic flows or b y fluctuating driving forces. We will mainly analyze the stochastic systems using the measurements perf orm d in two… CONTINUE READING
