Training Concept, Evolution Time, and the Maximum Entropy Production Principle
This work studies electric-field-induced self-assembly in suspensions of carbon nanotubes and realizes precise measurements of the entropy production rate (EPR), and introduces two types of EPR, which have qualitatively different significance: global EPR (g-EPR) and the entropy produced per unit time of the dissipative cloud itself (DC-E PR).
The Entropy Production of a Nonequilibrium Open System
A nonequilibrium open system is studied in the projection operator formalism. The environment may linearly deviate from its initial state under the reaction from the open system. If the relevant
A Statistical Inference of the Principle of Maximum Entropy Production
The maximization of entropy S within a closed system is accepted as an inevitability (as 1 the second law of thermodynamics) by statistical inference alone. The Maximum Entropy Production 2 Principle
Temporal evolution, directionality of time and irreversibility
The purpose of the present study is to elucidate certain aspects of the non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, namely the principal role of the correct description of the temporal evolution of a system and the corresponding procedure of averaging.
Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics and Scale Invariance
A variant of continuous nonequilibrium thermodynamic theory based on the postulate of the scale invariance of the local relation between generalized fluxes and forces provides a number of statements for a nonlinear case (maximum entropy production principle, macroscopic reversibility principle, and generalized reciprocity relations) that are under discussion in the literature.
Adiabatic Variations of Quantum Heat of a quantum body
In this article it will be introduced a new theorem, can be considered a generalization of Hellmann-Feynman theorem[1]. The latter used in conjunction with the quantization of the free energy[2] of a
Invariance of specific mass increment in the case of non-equilibrium growth
The invariance of specific mass increments of crystalline structures that co-exist in the case of non-equilibrium growth is grounded for the first time by using the maximum entropy production

Objections to a proposal on the rate of entropy production in systems far from equilibrium
Theoretical and experimental counter examples are given to a postulate by Sawada that nonequilibrium systems evolve in time along a path of maximum rate of entropy production.

A Theoretical Basis for Maximum Entropy Production
Maximum entropy production (MaxEP) is a conjectured selection criterion for the stationary states of non-equilibrium systems. In the absence of a firm theoretical basis, MaxEP has largely been
Some interesting consequences of the maximum entropy production principle
Two nonequilibrium phase transitions (morphological and hydrodynamic) are analyzed by applying the maximum entropy production principle. Quantitative analysis is for the first time compared with
The Maximum Entropy Production Principle: Its Theoretical Foundations and Applications to the Earth System
It is argued that in practical terms the MEP principle should be applied to Earth system processes in terms of the already established framework of non-equilibrium thermodynamics, with the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium at the appropriate scales.
Maximum entropy production principle in physics, chemistry and biology
Proposed principles of maximum local entropy production.
Any predictions based on MEPP-like principles should not be considered scientifically founded, because they are in error with the help of simple examples of well-known chemical and physical systems.
Stability, complexity and the maximum dissipation conjecture
The formalism of irreversible thermodynamics is extended to include the effect of random perturbations and applied to representative systems giving rise to instabilities and to complex nonlinear
