SummaryThe calculus of variations can be applied in thermodynamics obtaining both local and global analysis for the thermodynamical systems. Gyarmati’s principle is demonstrated to be the mathematical fundamental of the theorem of maximum for the entropy of the open systems. This last theorem is demonstrated for a general thermodynamical transformation, and also when chemical reactions can occur. 
The thermodynamic hamiltonian for open systems
The variational method is very important in mathematical and theoretical physics because it allows us to describe the natural systems by physical quantities independently from the frame of reference

The problem of irreversibility is difficult and part of this difficulty is due to dealing with the statistical mechanics of a large number of particles. The ergodic theory, founded on the link
Gouy-Stodola Theorem as a variational principle for open systems
The recent researches in non equilibrium and far from equilibrium systems have been proved to be useful for their applications in different disciplines and many subjects. A general principle to
Time, Irreversibility and Entropy Production in Nonequilibrium Systems
TLDR
A focus is on the notion of entropy generation as the marked characteristic of irreversible behaviour in time and irreversibility, in order to link macroscopic to microscopic approaches to these complicated problems.
