Mandag, 28 april, 2014, at 15:15-16:15, in Aud. D3 (1531-215)
Abstrakt:
Mathematical theory of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics has staged a spectacular development over the last fifteen years. 

In this talk, I will review some of these developments focusing on  the role of entropy, entropic functionals, and fluctuation theorems. The exposition will focus on ideas and  will be non-technical.
