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