Fact-Checking Ziegler's Maximum Entropy Production Principle beyond the Linear Regime and towards Steady States

Matteo Polettini
2013 Entropy  
We challenge claims that the principle of maximum entropy production produces physical phenomenological relations between conjugate currents and forces, even beyond the linear regime, and that currents  ...  in networks arrange themselves to maximize entropy production as the system approaches the steady state.  ...  Acknowledgments The research was supported by the National Research Fund Luxembourg in the frame of project FNR/A11/02.  ...

2019 arXiv   pre-print
For that, a general contact thermodynamics (CT) framework is derived from contact geometry, based on the maximum dissipation principle (MaxDP), thus extending Gibbs' seminal geometrical representation  ...  The obtained viscous Allen-Cahn equation allows both the PFM kinematic degrees of freedom, the order parameter and its gradient, to be fully dissipative.  ...  This yields Ziegler's orthogonality rule, generalizing the maximum plastic dissipation principle.  ...

Block Copolymers by Living Free Radical Polymerization [chapter]

Block Copolymers  
The steady-state equation for the radical species is given by Eq.  ...  At the left side of this maximum, the so-called buoy regime, the energy obtained from adsorption of the anchor block no longer compensates the loss in entropy caused by stretching of the buoy blocks, resulting  ...
