Probabilistic cellular automata (PCA) are used to model a variety of discrete spatially extended systems undergoing parallel-updating. We propose an embedding of a number of classical nonequilibrium concepts in the PCA-world. We start from time-symmetric PCA, satisfying detailed balance, and we give their Kubo formula for linear response. Close-to-detailed balance we investigate the form of the McLennan distribution and the minimum entropy production principle. More generally, when time…

### Life efficiency does not always increase with the dissipation rate

- Physics
- 2017

This work uses examples of molecular motors, of circadian cycles and of sensory adaptation, whose performance in some regimes is indeed spoiled by increasing the dissipated power, to make claims about the relation between dissipation and the amount of time-reversal breaking.

A parallel dynamics (Probabilistic Cellular Automaton) which efficiently implements the sampling and the presence of the parameter that drives the “inertial” term gives the possibility to control the degree of parallelism of the numerical implementation of the dynamics.
