The thermodynamic uncertainty relation
 
The thermodynamic uncertainty relation conjectured in 2015
[1] and proven using large deviation theory in 2016 [2]
provides a universal constraint relating mean and dispersion
of any current in a driven system with the overall entropy
production. I will first introduce the basic concepts behind
this relation and then discuss a few of its applications.
Prominent amomg those are a universal model-free bound on
the efficiency of molecular motors [3] and insight into the
current debate whether or not heat engines can approach
Carnot efficiency at finite power [4]. Stronger versions of
this bound require knowledge of the underlying topology and
driving affinities of the network [5].
