systems are deterministic and canonical
Take the Jarzynski work and decompose into into its reversible and irreversible parts.
Then we use the NonEquilibrium Partition Identity to obtain the Jarzynski work
For any ensemble we define a generalized “work” function as:
We observe that the Jacobian gives the volume ratio:
If the ensembles are canonical and if the systems are in contact with heat reservoirs at the same temperature
Assume equations of motion
Then from the equation for the generalized “work”:
Classical thermodynamics gives
• small system work.
• short trajectory
• small external forces
Strategy of experimental demonstration of the FTs
• single colloidal particle
• position & velocity measured precisely
• impose & measure small forces
. . . measure energies, to a fraction of , along paths
Photons impart momentum to the particle, directing it towards the most intense part of the beam.
k < 0.1 pN/m, 1.0 x 10-5 pN/Å
quadrant photodiode position detector sensitive to 15 nm, means that we can resolve forces down to 0.001 pN or energy fluctuations of 0.02 pN nm (cf. kBT=4.1 pN nm)

and FT and Crooks are “equivalent”
Wt > 0, work is required to translate the particle-filled trap
Wt < 0, heat fluctuations provide useful work

The LHS and RHS of the Integrated Transient Fluctuation Theorem (ITFT) versus time, t. Both sets of data were evaluated from 3300 experimental trajectories of a colloidal particle, sampled over a millisecond time interval. We also show a test of the NonEquilibrium Partition Identity.

•Colloid particle 6.3 µm in diameter.
• The optical trapping constant, k, was determined by applying the equipartition theorem: k = kBT/<r2>.
•The trapping constant was determined to be k = 0.12 pN/µm and the relaxation time of the stationary system was t =0.48 s.
• A single long trajectory was generated by continuously translating the microscope stage in a circular path.
• The radius of the circular motion was 7.3 µm and the frequency of the circular motion was 4 mHz.
• The long trajectory was evenly divided into 75 second long, non-overlapping time intervals, then each interval (670 in number) was treated as an independent steady-state trajectory from which we constructed the steady-state dissipation functions.
