Example text

Beyond the intermediate regime, in the long time limit the correlation function vanishes, QðtÞ ! 0. In this regime the second entropy is just the sum of the two first entropies, as is expected, Sð2Þ ðx0 ; xjtÞ ! Sð1Þ ðxÞ þ Sð1Þ ðx0 Þ; jtj ! 1 ð67Þ the second law of nonequilibrium thermodynamics 23 This follows directly by setting Q to zero in either of the two previous expressions. In the intermediate regime, ½SÀ1 À QðtÞ SQ ðtÞT ŠÀ1 $ ðQþ ÞÀ1 =2jtj ¼ a2 =jtj; and ðI þ QðtÞSÞ $ tQÀ S þ jtj Qþ S. Hence the second entropy goes like Sð2Þ ðx0 ; xjtÞ $ Sð1Þ ðxÞ þ þ jtj þ À1  2 jtj  ðQ Þ : x þ x ÁðQþ ÞÀ1 ½QÀ þ ^tQþ ŠSx 4 2 jtj þ À1 ðQ Þ : ð½QÀ þ ^tQþ ŠSxÞ2 4 ð68Þ The terms that are linear in the time interval must add up to a negative number, and so as the flux spontaneously develops these terms approach zero from below.

NONLINEAR THERMODYNAMICS A. Quadratic Expansion In the nonlinear regime, the thermodynamic force remains formally defined as the first derivative of the first entropy, XðxÞ ¼ qSð1Þ ðxÞ qx ð81Þ However, it is no longer a linear function of the displacement. In other words, the second derivative of the first entropy, which is the first entropy matrix, is no longer constant: SðxÞ ¼ q2 Sð1Þ ðxÞ qx qx ð82Þ For the second entropy, without assuming linearity, one can nevertheless take x0 to be close to x, which will be applicable for t not too large.

Forward and reverse transitions. The solid lines are the adiabatic trajectories over an infinitesimal time step, and the dashed lines are the stochastic transitions. ratio of the forward to the reverse transition probabilities is }ðG00 }ðGy GjÁt ; Xr Þ G00y jÁt ; Xyr Þ ÂÁ ðjG00 À G0 jÞeÀ½x 00 ¼ y ÂÁ ðjG À G 00 ¼ eÀ½x e e =Zss ðXr Þ y þx000 ŠÁXy =2kB ½xy þx000 ŠÁXyr =2kB Át ½x_ 00y Àx_ 00y ŠÁXyr =kB À½x r Á jÞe e Á Á e =Zss ðXyr Þ _ x_ Á ŠÁXr =kB þxŠÁXr =2kB ½x00Á þxÁ ŠÁXr =2kB Át ½xÀ e e 00y y 00y y y 00y y 00y y eÀ½x þx ŠÁXr =2kB e½xÁ þxÁ ŠÁXr =2kB eÁt ½x_ Àx_ Á ŠÁXr =kB 00 ¼ 000 _ x_ Á ŠÁXr =kB þx0 ŠÁXr =2kB ½x00Á þx0Á ŠÁXr =2kB Át ½xÀ eÀ½x _ x_ Á ŠÁXr =kB þxŠÁXr =2kB ½x00Á þxÁ ŠÁXr =2kB Át ½xÀ e e 00 00 00 eÀ½xþx00 ŠÁXr =2kB eÀ½xÁ þxÁ ŠÁXr =2kB eÀÁt ½x_ þx_ Á ŠÁXr =kB 00 _ x_ ¼ e½xÁ þxÁ ŠÁXr =kB eÁt ½xþ 00 ŠÁXr =kB ð175Þ the even terms canceling.
