Fluctuation theorem for the effusion of an ideal gas

Academic Article


  • The probability distribution of the entropy production for the effusion of an ideal gas between two compartments is calculated explicitly. The fluctuation theorem is verified. The analytic results are in good agreement with numerical data from hard disk molecular dynamics simulations. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
