If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

VENUE: Online

Thermodynamics plays a fundamental role in all branches of physics and in many other fields of science and technology. The theory is particularly well established for macroscopic systems at or close to equilibrium. In the last 25 years, however, very significant progress has been made in our understanding of a vast variety of nonequilibrium phenomena, and it is now clear that, under certain conditions and for certain dynamics, a consistent (statistical, in particular) description can be established for systems driven arbitrarily far away from equilibrium.

Nonetheless, neither a complete description of nonequilibrium states nor a full characterization of transport processes is available, as the system state appears to strongly depend on the nature of the constraints acting on it, and on many other details of the dynamics. In particular, at present there is no universally accepted generalization of the equilibrium thermodynamic potentials, suitable to describe the state probability distribution of an out-of-equilibrium system.

The goal of this two-weeks ICTS scientific program is to bring together the key experts, as well as new researchers (experimentalists and theoreticians) in the field of physics of non-equilibrium systems, to summarize the central achievements of the field and assess the remaining open problems, in order to foster further advances.

During these two weeks we plan to have two, and up to three online one hour talks in few selected days, on classical and quantum nonequilibrium aspects, with a particular emphasis on transport processes, to summarize the central achievements of the field, assess the remaining open problems, and to foster further advances.

Hello, indeed all this theormodynamics is important. I have a question, maybe you can help. If we consider the BB and the CMB ,we know that we have a paradox with the entropy, do you have an idea to solve the contradiction about the high and low entropies ?
