[en] We propose a way to incorporate the effect of a specific class of feedback processes into
stochastic thermodynamics. These “Maxwell demon” feedbacks do not affect the system energetics
but only the energy barriers between the system states (in a way which depends on the system
states). They are thus of a purely informational nature. We show that the resulting formalism can
be applied to study the thermodynamic effect of a feedback process acting on electron transfers
through a junction.
