This book offers a comprehensive picture of nonequilibrium phenomena in nanoscale systems. Written by internationally recognized experts in this field, it strikes a balance between theory and experiment, and includes in-depth introductions to nonequilibrium fluctuation relations, nonlinear dynamics and transport, single molecule experiments, and molecular diffusion in nanopores.

The authors explore the application of these concepts to nano- and biosystems by cross-linking key methods and ideas from nonequilibrium statistical physics, thermodynamics, stochastic theory and dynamical systems. By providing an up-to-date survey of small systems physics, it serves both as a valuable reference for experienced researchers and as an ideal starting point for graduate-level students moving into this newly emerging field of research.
