Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics inspired by modern information theory

Abstract:

A collection of recent papers revisit how to quantify the relationship between information and work in the light of modern information theory, so-called single-shot information theory. This is an introduction to those papers, from the perspective of the author. Many of the results may be viewed as a quantification of how much work a generalized Maxwell's daemon can extract as a function of its extra information. These expressions do not in general involve the Shannon/von Neumann entropy but r...
