Stochastic thermodynamics

Stochastic thermodynamics provides a framework for describing small driven systems along their fluctuating trajectories using concepts of classical thermodynamics like work, heat and entropy production. After reviewing the basic principles, I will discuss recent applications to the efficiency of molecular motors, to thermoelectric transport in a magnetic field and to cellular information processing.
