Comparison of extended irreversible thermodynamics and nonequilibrium statistical operator method with thermodynamics based on a distribution containing the first-passage time

An analogy is drawn between version of non-equilibrium thermodynamics a distribution-based containing an additional thermodynamic first-passage time parameter, nonequilibrium statistical operator



First passage times of mesoscopic charge transport and entropy change

The first-passage-time statistics of a stochastic process N(t) for electrons transferred through a metallic double dot are considered. It is shown that in calculating the average of the first-passage

Stationary flow, first passage times, and macroscopic Fick's first diffusion law: application to flow enhancement by particle trapping.

A generalized macroscopic Fick's first diffusion law is derived which describes steady-state particle flow between two baths explicitly as a function of the concentration gradient, acting as the


A simple theory of radiation enhanced diffusion has been worked out which describes the dependence of this enhancement on flux and temperature under steady‐state conditions. The theoretical study

Direct evaluation of the position dependent diffusion coefficient and persistence time from the equilibrium density profile in anisotropic fluids.

Results from the virtual layer molecular dynamics method are used to numerically assess the significance of the Smoluchowski approximation for particles of a non-homogeneous fluid enclosed in a planar nanopore.

First-passage time: a conception leading to superstatistics

To describe the nonequilibrium states of a system we introduce a new thermodynamic parameter – the lifetime (the first passage time) of a system. The statistical distributions that can be obtained

First-passage time and change of entropy

The first-passage time is proposed as an independent thermodynamic parameter of the statistical distribution that generalizes the Gibbs distribution. The theory does not include the determination of

Statistical physics of inhomogeneous transport: Unification of diffusion laws and inference from first-passage statistics.

Characterization of composite materials, whose properties vary in space over microscopic scales, has become a problem of broad interdisciplinary interest. In particular, estimation of the

First passage time distribution in heterogeneity controlled kinetics: going beyond the mean first passage time

This work derives rigorously the complete distribution of first passage times (FPTs) for a simple heterogeneous system and reveals a previously overlooked third characteristic time scale of the first passage dynamics mirroring brief excursion away from the target.
