Three Detailed Fluctuation Theorems

Massimiliano Esposito, Christian Van den Broeck
2010 Physical Review Letters  
The total entropy production of a trajectory can be split into an adiabatic and a non-adiabatic contribution, deriving respectively from the breaking of detailed balance via nonequilibrium boundary conditions or by external driving. We show that each of them, the total, the adiabatic and the non-adiabatic trajectory entropy, separately satisfies a detailed fluctuation theorem.
