The main purpose of this review is to summarize the recent advances of the Conservation–Dissipation Formalism (CDF), a new way for constructing both thermodynamically compatible and mathematically stable and well-posed models for irreversible processes. The contents include but are not restricted to the CDF’s physical motivations, mathematical foundations, formulations of several classical models in mathematical physics from master equations and Fokker–Planck equations to Boltzmann equations…

Conservation-dissipation formalism of irreversible thermodynamics
Abstract We propose a conservation-dissipation formalism (CDF) for coarse-grained descriptions of irreversible processes. This formalism is based on a stability criterion for non-equilibrium
Conservation-Dissipation Formalism for soft matter physics: I. Augmentation to Doi's variational approach
It is proved that by choosing the proper variational function and variables, the variational approach proposed by Doi in soft matter physics is equivalent to the Conservation-Dissipation Formalism.
Continuum mechanics and thermodynamics in the Hamilton and the Godunov-type formulations
Continuum mechanics with dislocations, with the Cattaneo-type heat conduction, with mass transfer, and with electromagnetic fields is put into the Hamiltonian form and into the form of the
A novel construction of thermodynamically compatible models and its correspondence with Boltzmann-equation-based moment-closure hierarchies
Abstract In this article, we propose a novel approach to construct macroscopic balance equations and constitutive equations describing various irreversible phenomena. It is based on the general
Extended Reversible and Irreversible Thermodynamics: A Hamiltonian Approach with Application to Heat Waves
Abstract A new version of extended irreversible thermodynamics (EIT) satisfying a Hamiltonian structure is proposed. For pedagogical purpose, the simple problem of linear heat conduction in a rigid

Onsager's variational principle gives a very convenient framework for deriving many established equations which describe the nonlinear and non-equilibrium phenomena in soft matter, such as phase separation kinetics in solutions, gel dynamics, molecular modeling for viscoelasticity nemato-hydrodynamics, etc.
Generalized hydrodynamics and the classical hydrodynamic limit
This work is concerned with our recently developed formalism of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. This formalism extends the classical irreversible thermodynamics which leads to classical

The framework enables us to evidence the First and Second Law of thermodynamics by relating the dissipativity theory to entropy production, heat dissipation, and work extraction.
Generalized Onsager's reciprocal relations for the master and Fokker-Planck equations.
A generalized version of Onsager's relations for the master equations and Fokker-Planck equations was derived based on the conservation-dissipation formalism, and nonlinear constitutive relations with nonsymmetric and positively stable operators constitute key features of this new generalization.
Non-Isothermal Electrokinetics: Energetic Variational Approach
Fluid dynamics accompanies with the entropy production thus increases the local temperature, which plays an important role in charged systems such as the ion channel in biological environment and
