Foreword. Fluctuation relation, fluctuation theorem, thermostats and entropy creation in non-equilibrium statistical physics. Comparison of far-from-equilibrium work relations. Stationary state fluctuation theorems for driven Langevin systems. Experimental study of work fluctuations in a harmonic oscillator. The nonequilibrium thermodynamics of small systems. Cumulants and large deviations of the current through non-equilibrium steady states. Work and heat probability distributions in out-of-equilibrium systems. Fluctuation and dissipation. Network and thermodynamic conditions for a single macroscopic current fluctuation theorem. Static and dynamical nonequilibrium fluctuations. Temporal ordering of nonequilibrium fluctuations as a corollary of the second law of thermodynamics. Thermodynamic formalism and large deviation functions in continuous time Markov dynamics. Negative entropy production in oscillatory processes. Lyapunov modes for a nonequilibrium system with a heat flux. Short-time fluctuations of displacements and work. Power injected in a granular gas. Bidirectional control–a unifying view of structure and function of proteins. Nonequilibrium decay of the thermal diffusion in a tilted periodic potential. Quantum fluctuation theorem: Can we go from micro to meso?. Dynamics of fluctuations in non-Markovian systems. Relativistic fluctuation theorems.
