Method of the most probable path of evolution in the theory of stationary irreversible processes

  • A. A. Filyukov

Nonequilibrium stationary thermodynamic systems are described by stationary random Markov processes with discrete time. For given macroscopic conditions, the condition of maximum path entropy determines the process.
