Fluctuation-Dissipation: Response Theory in Statistical Physics
by U.M.B. Marconi, A. Puglisi, L. Rondoni, A. Vulpiani
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 148
General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. After analyzing the conceptual and historical relevance of fluctuations in statistical mechanics, we illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.

Applications of the thermodynamic and statistical mechanics of small systems range from molecular biology to micro-mechanics, including models of nano-transport, Brownian motors, and (living or artificial) self-propelled organisms.

The review is devoted to the elucidation of the basic problems arising in the theoretical investigation of systems with Bose-Einstein condensate. Understanding these problems is necessary for the correct description of Bose-condensed systems.

We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities.
