Review article on Entropy from Prof. Mauro Paternostro

Last updated October 11, 2021 by Andrew Brown

A major review: Irreversible entropy production: From classical to quantum has been published in Reviews of Modern Physics.

The piece, co-authored by CTAMOP member and Head of School, Prof. Mauro Paternostro, centres on the fundamental concept of entropy. Despite having been defined and explored as early as the mid 19th Century, no “unifying theory of entropy production valid for general processes, both classical and quantum, has … yet been formulated.”
