I am interested in studying systems out of equilibrium that are trending to equilibrium. Trend to equilibrium, entropy production, etc. seem to be very tricky topics. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I am mainly interested in stuff like Cercignani conjecture, etc. Extra points for references in which estimates for entropy production are in terms of information theoretic arguments.

I have done the google searches and hence asking for suggestions from an expert.

  • $\begingroup$ Not just near equilibrium. Any general state trending towards equilibrium. $\endgroup$ – Boltzee May 10 '18 at 12:50
