On the problem of formulating principles in nonequilibrium thermodynamics
Paško Županović, Domagoj Kuić, Davor Juretić, Andrej Dobovišek, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: In this work, we consider the choice of a system suitable for the formulation of principles in nonequilibrium thermodynamics. It is argued that an isolated system is a much better candidate than a system in contact with a bath. In other words, relaxation processes rather than stationary processes are more appropriate for the formulation of principles in nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Arguing that slow varying relaxation can be described with quasi-stationary process, it is shown for two special cases, linear nonequilibrium thermodynamics and linearized Boltzmann equation, that solutions of these problems are in accordance with the maximum entropy production principle.
Keywords: thermodynamics, entropy, relaxation, stationary process, entropy production
