We review recent results on the relationships between the microscopic chaos in the motion of atoms or molecules in fluids and the transport properties sustained across these macroscopic systems. In the escape-rate formalism, the transport coefficients can be expressed in terms of the positive Lyapunov exponents, the Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy per unit time or… CONTINUE READING
