This is a special Spring Break - Friday Seminar

Coffee and bagels and snacks will be served. The seminar will be recorded for later viewing.

Abstract: I will demonstrate how recent advancements in nonequilibrium thermodynamics can effectively characterize the energetics of a broad spectrum of complex systems. The methodology involves examining the macroscopic behavior of systems governed by thermodynamically consistent stochastic dynamics, such as chemical reaction networks, nonlinear electric circuits, and Potts models. I will explore the novel fundamental insights derived from this approach, along with its practical applications in analyzing the energetics of phenomena like synchronization, active phase separation, and energy transduction within chemical reaction networks.
