Mathematical Physics Seminar


Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 27 October 2016 at 12:00PM - 12:11PM

David Ruelle , Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES): Detailed balance relates the transition probabilities J -> K and K -> J between two states J,K of a system M in equilibrium with a bath at a certain temperature. This relation is based on time-reversal invariance of physical laws. It can give very specific answers to certain questions. We discuss detailed balance in the case of an “active” bath (containing chemical with which our system M can react). This situation has been considered by J. England, and remains intriguing and interesting.
