We generalize the link between fluctuation theorems and thermodynamic uncertainty relations by deriving a bound on the variance of fluxes that satisfy an isometric fluctuation theorem. The resulting bound, which depends on the system’s dimension d , naturally interpolates between two known bounds. The bound derived from the entropy production fluctuation theorem is recovered for $$d=1$$ d = 1 , and the original entropy production thermodynamic uncertainty relation is obtained in the $$d… 

Universal Thermodynamic Uncertainty Relation in Non-Equilibrium Dynamics

We derive a universal thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR) that applies to an arbitrary observable in a general Markovian system. The generality of our result allows us to make two findings: (1)

Thermodynamic uncertainty relation for Langevin dynamics by scaling time.

The thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR) quantifies a relationship between current fluctuations and dissipation in out-of-equilibrium overdamped Langevin dynamics, making it a natural counterpart

Experimental study of the thermodynamic uncertainty relation

A cost-precision trade-off relationship, the so-called thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR), has been recently discovered in stochastic thermodynamics. It bounds certain thermodynamic observables

Thermodynamic uncertainty relation for energy transport in a transient regime: A model study.

A transient version of the recently discovered thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR) which provides a precision-cost trade-off relation for certain out-of-equilibrium thermodynamic observables in terms of net entropy production is investigated and a rigorous proof following the nonequilibrium Green's function approach that the tighter bound is always satisfied in the weak-coupling regime for generic bipartite systems is provided.

Symmetry-induced fluctuation relations for dynamical observables irrespective of their behavior under time reversal.

It is proved that given a symmetry at the level of stochastic trajectories in Markov chains, it is always possible to obtain a FR under a biased dynamics corresponding to the so-called generalized Doob transform.

Precision Enhancement via Symmetry Breaking in Quantum Markov Process

Symmetry breaking with respect to the time reversal characterizes entropy production. This viewpoint induces us to regard thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR), stating that higher precision can

We introduce a model for a periodically driven electron pump that sequentially interacts with an arbitrary number of heat and particle reservoirs. Exact expressions for the thermodynamic fluxes, such

We study energetic exchanges and fluctuations in two-stroke quantum thermodynamic engines where the working fluid is represented by two multilevel quantum systems, i.e. qudits, the heat flow is



Thermodynamic Uncertainty Relations from Exchange Fluctuation Theorems.

This Letter identifies the tightest (and saturable) matrix-valued TUR that can be derived from the exchange fluctuation theorems describing the statistics of heat and particle flow between multiple systems of arbitrary dimensions.

Fluctuation Theorem Uncertainty Relation.

It is shown that the fluctuation theorem uncertainty relation can handle systems controlled by time-symmetric external protocols, in which the lower bound is given by the work exerted on the systems.

We extend a class of recently derived thermodynamic uncertainty relations to vector-valued observables. In contrast to the scalar-valued observables examined previously, this multidimensional

Thermodynamic uncertainty relations constrain non-equilibrium fluctuations

In equilibrium thermodynamics, there exists a well-established connection between dynamical fluctuations of a physical system and the dissipation of its energy into an environment. However, few

Thermodynamic bounds on equilibrium fluctuations of a global or local order parameter

We analyze thermodynamic bounds on equilibrium fluctuations of an order parameter, which are analogous to relations, which have been derived recently in the context of non-equilibrium fluctuations of

Thermodynamic uncertainty relations including measurement and feedback.

Thermodynamic uncertainty relations quantify how the signal-to-noise ratio of a given observable is constrained by dissipation and show that any fluctuation relation directly implies a thermodynamic uncertainty relation, considerably increasing their range of applicability.

Isometric fluctuation relations for equilibrium states with broken symmetry.

A set of isometric fluctuation relations are derived, which constrain the order parameter fluctuations in finite-size systems at equilibrium and in the presence of a broken symmetry, which apply generally to many condensed-matter physics systems.

Fluctuation relations for equilibrium states with broken discrete symmetries

Relationships are obtained expressing the breaking of spin-reversal symmetry by an external magnetic field in Gibbsian canonical equilibrium states of spin systems under specific assumptions. These

Assessing the validity of the thermodynamic uncertainty relation in quantum systems

We examine the so-called thermodynamic uncertainty relation (TUR), a cost-precision trade-off relationship in transport systems. Based on the fluctuation symmetry, we derive a condition on the

Symmetries in fluctuations far from equilibrium

An isometric fluctuation relation is derived that links in a strikingly simple manner the probabilities of any pair of isometric current fluctuations, and this relation adds a completely new perspective on the high level of symmetry imposed by time-reversibility on the statistics of nonequilibrium fluctuations.
