Thermodynamic functionality of autonomous quantum networks

Heiko Christian Schröder
Thermodynamics is a theory of impressive success and a wide range of applicability. Nevertheless, it took about two hundred years after the basic formulation of phenomenological thermodynamics until Boltzmann and Maxwell gave a foundation in terms statistical mechanics based on classical mechanics. The invention of quantum mechanics has triggered various attempts to establish a theory of quantum thermodynamics, i.e., to explain and derive thermodynamics by quantum mechanics only. Recently, a new approach to this question...
