The large-time and vanishing-noise limits for entropy production in nondegenerate diffusions

  title={The large-time and vanishing-noise limits for entropy production in nondegenerate diffusions},
  author={Renaud Raqu'epas},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics},
We investigate the behaviour of a family of entropy production functionals associated to stochastic differential equations of the form $\mathrm{d} X_s = -\nabla V(X_s) \, \mathrm{d} s + b(X_s) \, \mathrm{d} s + \sqrt{2\epsilon} \, \mathrm{d} W_s $, where $b$ is a globally Lipschitz nonconservative vector field keeping the system out of equilibrium, with emphasis on the large-time limit and then the vanishing-noise limit. Different members of the family correspond to different choices of…

A Gallavotti–Cohen-Type Symmetry in the Large Deviation Functional for Stochastic Dynamics
We extend the work of Kurchan on the Gallavotti–Cohen fluctuation theorem, which yields a symmetry property of the large deviation function, to general Markov processes. These include jump processes
Entropic Fluctuations in Thermally Driven Harmonic Networks
We consider a general network of harmonic oscillators driven out of thermal equilibrium by coupling to several heat reservoirs at different temperatures. The action of the reservoirs is implemented
Gallavotti–Cohen Theorem, Chaotic Hypothesis and the Zero-Noise Limit
Abstract The Fluctuation Relation for a stationary state, kept at constant energy by a deterministic thermostat—the Gallavotti–Cohen Theorem— relies on the ergodic properties of the system
Small noise asymptotic of the Gallavotti-Cohen functional for diffusion processes
We consider, for a diffusion process in R^n, the Gallavotti-Cohen functional, defined as the empirical power dissipated in a time interval by the non-conservative part of the drift. We prove a large
$L^p$-regularity for elliptic operators with unbounded coefficients
Abstract. Under suitable conditions on the functions a ∈ C(R , RN2), F ∈ C(R , R ), and V : R → [0,∞), we show that the operator Au = ∇(a∇u) + F · ∇u − V u with domain W 2,p V (R ) = {u ∈ W (R ) : V
In this paper we study the effect on a dynamical system of small random perturbations of the type of white noise: where is the -dimensional Wiener process and as . We are mainly concerned with the
Eigenvalues and subelliptic estimates for non-selfadjoint semiclassical operators with double characteristics
For a class of non-selfadjoint $h$--pseudodifferential operators with double characteristics, we give a precise description of the spectrum and establish accurate semiclassical resolvent estimates in
The Fluctuation Theorem
The question of how reversible microscopic equations of motion can lead to irreversible macroscopic behaviour has been one of the central issues in statistical mechanics for more than a century. The
Certain Liouville properties of eigenfunctions of elliptic operators
We present certain Liouville properties of eigenfunctions of second-order elliptic operators with real coefficients, via an approach that is based on stochastic representations of positive solutions,
Asymptotic Behavior of Thermal Nonequilibrium Steady States for a Driven Chain of Anharmonic Oscillators
Abstract: We consider a model of heat conduction introduced in [6], which consists of a finite nonlinear chain coupled to two heat reservoirs at different temperatures. We study the low temperature
