Abstract

We consider thermodynamic systems with finitely many degrees of freedom and subject to an external control action. We derive some basic results on the dependence of the relative entropy production rate on the controlling force. Applications to macromolecular cooling and to controlling the convergence to equilibrium rate are sketched. Analogous results are derived for closed and open n-level quantum systems.
