The present paper reports our attempt to search for a new universal framework in nonequilibrium physics. We propose a thermodynamic formalism that is expected to apply to a large class of nonequilibrium steady states including a heat conducting fluid, a sheared fluid, and an electrically conducting fluid. We call our theory steady state thermodynamics (SST) after Oono and Paniconi's original proposal. The construction of SST is based on a careful examination of how the basic notions in… 
Thermodynamics and phase coexistence in nonequilibrium steady states
I review recent work focussing on whether thermodynamics can be extended to nonequilibrium steady states (NESS), in particular, the possibility of consistent definitions of temperature T and chemical
Thermodynamics of stationary states of the ideal gas in a heat flow
There is a long-standing question, to whether and to what extent it is possible to describe nonequilibrium systems in stationary states in terms of global thermodynamic functions. The positive
Thermodynamic Transformations of Nonequilibrium States
We consider a macroscopic system in contact with boundary reservoirs and/or under the action of an external field. We discuss the case in which the external forcing depends explicitly on time and
Kinetic Theory of dilute gases under nonequilibrium conditions
The significance of the recent finding of the velocity distribution function of the steady-state Boltzmann equation under a steady heat current obtained by Kim and Haykawa (J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. {\bf

The Gibbs fundamental relation, thermodynamic potentials, and irreversible entropy generation are expressed in terms of observables and internal variables and are used to formulate the nonequilibrium thermodynamics of inhomogeneous systems.
The thermodynamics of small driven systems
In the present thesis, a thermodynamic theory is developed for driven soft matter systems like polymer solutions and colloidal suspensions. Within this theory, notions like the work applied to the
Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of shear flow: invariant quantities and current relations
In modeling nonequilibrium systems one usually starts with a definition of the microscopic dynamics, e.g., in terms of transition rates, and then derives the resulting macroscopic behavior. We
Steady-state entropy: A proposal based on thermodynamic integration.
The results suggest that an associated steady-state entropy S_{th} be constructed via thermodynamic integration, using relations such as (∂S/∂E)_{V,N}=1/T, ensuring that derivatives of S{th} with respect to energy and particle number yield the expected intensive parameters.
An expression of excess work during the transition between nonequilibrium steady states
Excess work is a nondiverging part of the work during the transition between nonequilibrium steady states (NESSs). It is a central quantity in steady-state thermodynamics (SST), which is a candidate
Stochastic thermodynamics with odd controlling parameters.
Stochastic thermodynamics is applied to small systems with odd controlling parameters and it is found that the definition of heat and the microscopically reversible condition are incompatible, which leads to a revision to the fluctuation theorems and nonequilibrium work relations.


Dynamical ensembles in stationary states
We propose, as a generalization of an idea of Ruelle's to describe turbulent fluid flow, a chaotic hypothesis for reversible dissipative many-particle systems in nonequilibrium stationary states in
Experimental test of Hatano and Sasa's nonequilibrium steady-state equality.
It is found that -ln approximately 0 for three different nonequilibrium systems, supporting Hatano and Sasa's proposed extension of thermodynamics to arbitrary steady states and irreversible transitions, and tested by measuring the dissipation and fluctuations of microspheres optically driven through water.

This work confirms the validity of the integrability condition (the Maxwell relation) for the two quantities whose values differ from those for an equilibrium system, and investigates a fluctuation relation associated with this free-energy function.
Steady-state thermodynamics of Langevin systems.
L Langevin dynamics describing nonequilibirum steady states is studied, finding that the extended form of the second law which they proposed holds for transitions between steady states and that the Shannon entropy difference is related to the excess heat produced in an infinitely slow operation.
Macroscopic Fluctuation Theory for Stationary Non-Equilibrium States
We formulate a dynamical fluctuation theory for stationary non-equilibrium states (SNS) which is tested explicitly in stochastic models of interacting particles. In our theory a crucial role is
