# Second law for transitions between nonequilibrium steady states

@article{Bagci2013SecondLF, title={Second law for transitions between nonequilibrium steady states}, author={G. Bagci and U. Tirnakli and J. Kurths}, journal={Physical Review E}, year={2013}, volume={87} }

We show that the system entropy change for the transitions between nonequilibrium steady states arbitrarily far from equilibrium for any constituting process is given by the relative entropy of the distributions of these steady states. This expression is then shown to relate to the dissipation relations of both S. Vaikuntanathan and C. Jarzynski [Europhys. Lett. 87, 60005 (2009)] and R. Kawai et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 080602 (2007)] in the case of energy-conserving driving.

Fluctuations When Driving Between Nonequilibrium Steady States

- Physics, Biology
- 2016

This work identifies the constraints on excess heat and dissipated work necessary to control a system that is kept far from equilibrium by background, uncontrolled “housekeeping” forces by extending the Crooks fluctuation theorem to transitions among NESSs, without invoking an unphysical dual dynamics.
