Abstract :
[en] In an essential and quite general setup, based on networks, we identify Schnakenberg's observables as the constraints that prevent a system from relaxing to equilibrium, showing that, in the linear regime, steady states satisfy a minimum entropy production principle. The result is applied to master equation systems, opening a new path to a well-known version of the principle regarding invariant states. Moreover, with the aid of a simple example, the principle is shown to conform to Prigogine's original formulation. Finally, we discuss analogies and differences with a recently proposed maximum entropy production principle.
