Abstract: We formulate a theory of non-equilibrium statistical thermodynamics for ensembles of atoms or molecules. The theory is an application of Jayne's maximum entropy principle, which allows the statistical treatment of systems away from equilibrium. In particular, neither temperature nor atomic fractions are required to be uniform but instead are allowed to take different values from particle to particle. In addition, following the Coleman-Noll method of continuum thermodynamics we derive a dissipation inequality e… Show more

“…Following Kulkarni et al (2008) and Venturini et al (2014), we specifically consider systems consisting of N identical particles, e.g., atoms or molecules. An extension to systems comprised of particles of different species may be found in Venturini et al (2014).…”

“…An extension to systems comprised of particles of different species may be found in Venturini et al (2014). We assume that the statistics of the system obeys Jaynes' principle of maximum entropy (Jaynes, 1957a,b) (see also Zubarev, 1974;Callen, 1985).…”
