Exact correspondence between Renyi entropy flows and physical flows

29 May 2015  ·  Ansari Mohammad H., Nazarov Yuli V. ·

We present a universal relation between the flow of a Renyi entropy and the full counting statistics of energy transfers. We prove the exact relation for a flow to a system in thermal equilibrium that is weakly coupled to an arbitrary time-dependent and non-equilibrium system... The exact correspondence, given by this relation, provides a simple protocol to quantify the flows of Shannon and Renyi entropies from the measurements of energy transfer statistics. read more
