Abstract

Stochastic Thermodynamics (ST) extends the notions of classical thermodynamics to trajectories taken from a nonequilibrium ensemble. This extension yields a simple approach to fluctuation relations in small systems. Multiple time- and length scales play an important role for measurements but also for the foundations of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. Here, under the assumptions of local equilibrium we derive the trajectory functionals of ST in the context of reversible deterministic thermostats. Further, the connection to previous work is made.
