Time-Reversal Symmetry, Poincaré Recurrence, Irreversibility, and the Entropic Arrow of Time From Mechanics to System Thermodynamics
In this paper, we use a large-scale dynamical systems perspective to provide a system-theoretic foundation for thermodynamics. Specifically, using a state space formulation, we develop a nonlinear compartmental dynamical system model characterized by energy conservation laws that is consistent with...
