Stochastic dynamics with random resetting leads to a non-equilibrium steady state. Here, we consider the thermodynamics of resetting by deriving the first and second law for resetting processes far from equilibrium. We identify the contributions to the entropy production of the system which arise due to resetting and show that they correspond to the rate with which information is either erased or created. Using Landauer's principle, we derive a bound on the amount of work that is required to…

Quantum mechanical approach to stochastic resetting

We study the dynamics of overdamped Brownian particles diffusing in force fields and undergoing stochastic resetting to a given location with a generic {\em space-dependent} rate of resetting. We

Experimental Realization of Diffusion with Stochastic Resetting

The first experimental corroboration of central theoretical results is provided and the energetic cost of resetting in steady-state and first-passage scenarios is measured, showing that this cost cannot be made arbitrarily small because of fundamental constraints on realistic resetting protocols.

Asymmetric stochastic resetting: Modeling catastrophic events.

An approach to obtain the exact nonequilibrium steady state of such systems and the mean first passage time to reach the origin is presented and the explicit solutions for two different model systems are obtained.

Stochastic resetting and applications

In this topical review we consider stochastic processes under resetting, which have attracted a lot of attention in recent years. We begin with the simple example of a diffusive particle whose

Work Fluctuations and Jarzynski Equality in Stochastic Resetting.

It is shown that the distribution function of the work typically, in asymptotic times, converges to a universal Gaussian form for any protocol as long as that is also renewed after each resetting event.

We consider a single Brownian particle in one dimension in a medium at a constant temperature in the underdamped regime. We stochastically reset the position of the Brownian particle to a fixed point

Resetting or restart, when applied to a stochastic process, usually brings its dynamics to a time-independent stationary state. In turn, the optimal resetting rate makes the mean time to reach a

Run and tumble particle under resetting: a renewal approach

This work considers a particle undergoing run and tumble dynamics, in which its velocity stochastically reverses, in one dimension and shows that the the mean time to absorption is always less for velocity randomization than for position-only resetting.

Synchronization in the Kuramoto model in presence of stochastic resetting.

What happens when the paradigmatic Kuramoto model involving interacting oscillators of distributed natural frequencies and showing spontaneous collective synchronization in the stationary state is

Resetting with stochastic return through linear confining potential

We consider motion of an overdamped Brownian particle subject to stochastic resetting in one dimension. In contrast to the usual setting where the particle is instantaneously reset to a preferred



Non-equilibrium steady states of stochastic processes with intermittent resetting

Stochastic processes that are randomly reset to an initial condition serve as a showcase to investigate non-equilibrium steady states. However, all existing results have been restricted to the

Thermodynamics of a colloidal particle in a time-dependent nonharmonic potential.

The first lawlike balance between applied work, exchanged heat, and internal energy on the level of a single trajectory is demonstrated, and the observed distribution of applied work is distinctly non-Gaussian in good agreement with numerical calculations.

First Order Transition for the Optimal Search Time of Lévy Flights with Resetting.

An intermittent search process in one dimension where a searcher undergoes a discrete time jump process starting at x_{0}≥0 and the mean first passage time (MFPT) to the origin is studied, which has a global minimum in the (μ,r) plane.
