Fluctuations, information flow and experimental measurements.

ESPCI, Paris, January 26 & 27th, 2010


The workshop will take place at the École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles (ESCPCI), Amphithéâtre Langevin, in the 5th district of Paris (quartier Latin) — see Location & directions for further information.

The conferences are free of charge.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss both how fluctuations can be used to extract information from various systems and how they limit our measurement possibilities. The lectures will cover theroretical approaches as well as experimental results, emphasizing the following topics: analysis of dynamical systems, fluctuation theorems, information cost and dissipation, time arrow, population genetics, Maxwell's daemons, optimal work extraction, quantum measurements and emergence of classical laws.

The workshop is a satellite of the “Journées de physique statistique 2010” that will take place on the 28-29th January:
