TCBG Seminar

Irreversible Work and Equilibrium Free Energy Differences

Dr. Christopher Jarzynski

Los Alamos, NM

Thursday, February 19, 1998
3:00 pm (CT)
3269 Beckman Institute


I will present a generalization, to IRREVERSIBLE processes, of the well-known relation between reversible work and free energy differences. I will then discuss a generalization of this result, as well as potential applications in the context of numerical methods for computing free energy differences.

Tea and coffee will be served in R3151 Beckman Institute at 2:15pm.
