**Fluctuation-Dissipation: Response Theory in Statistical Physics**

by U.M.B. Marconi, A. Puglisi, L. Rondoni, A. Vulpiani

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 148

**Description**:

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. After analyzing the conceptual and historical relevance of fluctuations in statistical mechanics, we illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.
