Details research group Theoretical Physics (THFY)


Expertises of the research group :

The research of our group focuses on nonequilibrium statistical physics. We deal mostly with a theoretical foundation for this theory, but also make the connection with applications in physics, biology and nano-technology. We have worked on work and fluctuation theorems (both for classical and quantum systems), microscopic theories for entropy production, thermodynamic efficiency at maximum power, stochastic thermodynamics, Brownian motors and refrigerators, electrochemical and electro-optical nano-devices, knots in macromolecules, non-equilibrium phase transitions and collective behaviour on networks.
