Detailed Balance, Fluctuations and Dissipation

  • Wilhelm Brenig

Abstract

Relations between spontaneous and forced deviations from equilibrium occur over and over again in statistical mechanics. It starts already in equilibrium situations with the well-known relations between fluctuations and static susceptibilities [Ref.5.1, Sects. 14,49,50]. In qualitative terms: the larger the response to external perturbations, the larger the spontaneous fluctuations.
