Abstract

The recent development of the theory of fluctuation
relations has led to new insights into the ever-lasting question
of how irreversible behavior emerges from time-reversal
symmetric microscopic dynamics. We provide an introduction to
fluctuation relations, examine their relation to
dissipation and discuss their impact on the arrow of time
question.
