We study driven finite quantum systems in contact with a thermal reservoir in the regime in which the system changes slowly in comparison to the equilibration time. The associated isothermal adiabatic theorem allows us to control the full statistics of energy transfers in quasi-static processes. Within this approach, we extend Landauer's Principle on the energetic cost of erasure processes to the level of the full statistics and elucidate the nature of the fluctuations breaking Landauer's bound… Expand

A note on the Landauer principle in quantum statistical mechanics
The Landauer principle asserts that the energy cost of erasure of one bit of information by the action of a thermal reservoir in equilibrium at temperature T is never less than kT log 2. We discussExpand
Nonequilibrium quantum Landauer principle.
TLDR
A lower bound for the heat exchange in a Landauer erasure process on a quantum system is derived from a nonphenomenological derivation of the Landauer principle which holds for generic nonequilibrium dynamics. Expand

TLDR
A simple, physically motivated model of a dilute classical gas of interacting particles, initially equilibrated with a heat bath, undergoing adiabatic and quasistatic compression or expansion is considered, finding that the work performed during this process is described statistically by a gamma distribution.

We generalize the adiabatic approximation to the case of open quantum systems, in the joint limit of slow change and weak open system disturbances. We show that the approximation is ``physicallyExpand

TLDR
This presents the first test of the Ruelle principle on a many particle system far from equilibrium, and a specific prediction, obtained without the need to construct explicitly the SRB itself, is shown to be in agreement with a recent computer experiment on a strongly sheared fluid. Expand
