Dissipative work, Clausius inequality, and microscopic reversibility for
open Hamiltonian systems

Takaaki Monnai
We derive a microscopic expression of the Clausius inequality for isothermal open systems within the fundamental Hamiltonian dynamics. We also show the positivity of the dissipative work, which is a path integral generalization of the so-called relative entropy for the probability functionals of time forward- and reversed- trajectories.
