We study Markovian stochastic motion on a graph with finite number of nodes and adiabatically periodically driven transition rates. We show that, under general conditions, the quantized currents that appear at low temperatures are a manifestation of topological invariants in the counting statistics of currents. This observation provides an approach for classification of topological properties of the counting statistics, as well as for extensions of the phenomenon of the robust quantization of…

Stochastic Dynamics of Extended Objects in Driven Systems II: Current Quantization in the Low-Temperature Limit
Abstract Driven Langevin processes have appeared in a variety of fields due to the relevance of natural phenomena having both deterministic and stochastic effects. The stochastic currents and fluxes
Algebraic topology and the quantization of fluctuating currents
Abstract We give a new approach to the study of statistical mechanical systems: algebraic topology is used to investigate the statistical distributions of stochastic currents generated in graphs. In

Abstract The probability distributions, as well as the mean values of stochastic currents and fluxes, associated with a driven Langevin process, provide a good and topologically protected measure of
Unification and new extensions of the no-pumping theorems of stochastic pumps
From molecular machines to quantum dots, a wide range of mesoscopic systems can be modeled by periodically driven Markov processes, or stochastic pumps. Currents in the stochastic pumps are delimited
Gauge freedom in observables and Landsberg's nonadiabatic geometric phase: Pumping spectroscopy of interacting open quantum systems
We set up a general density-operator approach to geometric steady-state pumping through slowly driven open quantum systems. This approach applies to strongly interacting systems that are weakly
Non-adiabatic effect in quantum pumping for a spin-boson system
We clarify the role of non-adiabatic effects in a quantum pumping for a spin-boson system. When we sinusoidally control the temperatures of two reservoirs with \pi/2 phase difference, we find that

Hybrid models of molecular machines and the no-pumping theorem.
This work introduces a more detailed and realistic class of models in which transitions between metastable states occur by finite-time, diffusive processes rather than sudden jumps, and shows that the no-pumping theorem remains valid within this framework.
Nonadiabatic Control of Geometric Pumping.
It is found that a geometrical interpretation for the nontrivial part of the current is possible even in the nonadiabatic regime, and a smooth connection is found between the adiabatic Berry phase theory at low frequencies and the Floquet theory at high frequencies.
Directed motion of periodically driven molecular motors: a graph-theoretical approach.
It is shown that the proposed numerical algorithm allows one to calculate the motion of a system in the space of its microstates even when the considered phase space is combinatorially large.


Quantization and fractional quantization of currents in periodically driven stochastic systems. I. Average currents.
It is shown that under general conditions, the currents in the system on average become quantized or fractionally quantized for adiabatic driving at sufficiently low temperature and the quantitative theory of this quantization is developed in terms of topological invariants.
Phase transitions in full counting statistics for periodic pumping
We discuss the problem of full counting statistics for periodic pumping. The probability generating function is usually defined on a circle of the "physical" values of the counting parameter, with
Discrete changes of current statistics in periodically driven stochastic systems
We demonstrate that the counting statistics of currents in periodically driven ergodic stochastic systems can show sharp changes of some of its properties in response to continuous changes of the
Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics and Topology of Currents
In many experimental situations, a physical system undergoes stochastic evolution which may be described via random maps between two compact spaces. In the current work, we study the applicability of
The geometric universality of currents
We discuss a non-equilibrium statistical system on a graph or network. Particles are injected, interact with each other, and traverse and leave the graph in a stochastic manner. We show that under
Counting statistics of an adiabatic pump
We use the Schwinger-Keldysh formalism to derive the charge counting statistics of an adiabatic pump based on an open quantum dot. The distribution function of the transmitted charge in terms of the
Current fluctuations and statistics during a large deviation event in an exactly solvable transport model
We study the distribution of the time-integrated current in an exactly solvable toy model of heat conduction, both analytically and numerically. The simplicity of the model allows us to derive the
Robust quantization of a molecular motor motion in a stochastic environment.
The pumping-quantization theorem (PQT) is formulated that identifies the conditions for robust integer quantized behavior of a periodically driven molecular machine.
The Berry phase and the pump flux in stochastic chemical kinetics
We study a classical two-state stochastic system in a sea of substrates and products (absorbing states), which can be interpreted as a single Michaelis-Menten catalyzing enzyme or as a channel on a
Fluctuation statistics in networks: A stochastic path integral approach
We investigate the statistics of fluctuations in a classical stochastic network of nodes joined by connectors. The nodes carry generalized charge that may be randomly transferred from one node to
