# Unifying thermodynamic geometries

@inproceedings{Chennakesavalu2022UnifyingTG, title={Unifying thermodynamic geometries}, author={Shriram Chennakesavalu and Grant M. Rotskoff}, year={2022} }

Controlling thermodynamic cycles to minimize the dissipated heat is a longstanding goal in thermodynamics, and more recently, a central challenge in stochastic thermodynamics for nanoscale systems. Here, we introduce a theoretical and computational framework for optimizing nonequilibrium control protocols that can transform a system between two distributions in a minimally dissipative fashion. These protocols optimally transport a system along a Wasserstein geodesic, paths through the space of…
