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.

The authors discuss the development of basic kinetic approaches to more complex and contemporary systems. Among the large menu of stochastic and irreversible processes, we chose the ones that we consider to be among the most instructive.

The book charts the development and theoretical analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. It connects molecular dynamics simulation with the mathematical theory to understand non-equilibrium steady states.

This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.

The theory of large deviations deals with the probabilities of rare events that are exponentially small as a function of some parameter, e.g., the number of random components of a system or the time over which a stochastic system is observed.
