In equilibrium, we can use functions of states --- free energies,thermodynamic potentials --- to determine the most probable state. In fact, wecan even determine the probability of arbitrary states. Out of equilibrium, itwould seem that the natural generalization would be to use a functional of asequence of states, of a trajectory, to determine the probability oftrajectories. In the case of small, linear deviations from equilibrium, theOnsager-Machlup (or Onsager-Rayleigh) "action" gives us such a functional oftrajectories. What works far from equilibrium? In equilibrium, one can linkthe thermodynamic potentials to functions which specify the rate of decayof large deviations, and this is still trueout of equilibrium (see, e.g., Touchette's great review paper), but this ismore of a mathematical result than a "physical" one.Here's an argument for the ubiquity of effective actions. Markov processeshave Gibbs distributions over sequences of states, and Gibbs distributions,just by definition, arise from an effective action. (*) Many nonequilibriumsystems can be described by Markov processes (say, deterministic trajectoryplus noise). But I'd go further and argue that every nonequilbriumsystem can be represented as a Markov process --- that if you haven't foundone, you're not looking hard enough. (That argument's ina separate paper.) So itshould always be possible to find an effective action. But thisdoesn't establish that there should be a common form for these actions acrossdifferent systems, which is what e.g., Keizer and Woo (separately) claim.Are there universal criteria for the stability of non-equilibrium steadystates, or must be actually investigate entire paths? Landauer argued for thelatter, convincingly to my mind, but I need to learn more here.Approach to equilibrium doesn't interest me so much as sustainednon-equilibrium situations, but like everybody else I suppose they're stronglyconnected. Fluctuation-dissipation results are accordingly interesting,especially ones which do not assume nearness to equilibrium. The Evans-Searlesfluctuation theorem, which is well-supported by experiments (see e.g. the Carberry et al. paper) is extremely interesting.I should try to explain some ideas about the role of smooth dynamicalsystems in the statistical mechanics here, but anyone who's geeky enough to beinterested really ought to read Ruelle's review article rather than listen tome, and, after that, Dorfman's book.*: Pedantically, a Gibbs distribution over a collection of variables \( X_t \), index by \( \mathcalT \), collectively \( X \), will take the form \( \mathbbP(X=x) \propto e^-u(x) \), and the "potential" \( u(x) = \sum_A \in 2^\mathcalTu_A(x_A) \), where \( u_A \) is a function only of the values of the random variables at the indices \( A \). (Obvious measure-theoretic complications for continuous index sets are obvious.) The sets \( A \) which actually contribute to the potential are called "cliques". In the particular case of Markov processes in discrete time, the cliques are pairs of successive indices \( \left\ t, t+1 \right\ \), so we can think of \( u(x) \) as being basically a discrete-time effective action. For continuous-time Markov processes, see under Path Integrals and Feynman Diagrams for Classical Stochastic Processes.See alsoFluctuation-Response Relations;Foundatons of Statistical Mechanics;Interacting Particle Systems;Large Deviations;Mori-Zwanzig Formalism;Pattern Formation;Ilya Prigogine;Self-organization;Self-organized Critcality;Statistical Mechanics;Stochastic Processes;Recommended, big picture:S.
