The optimum rate of first entropy production may also be written in terms of the fluxes, ð1Þ _ ^tÞ2 S_ ðxÞ ¼ À^tLð^tÞÀ1 : xðx; ð63Þ Only the symmetric part of the inverse of the transport matrix contributes to this (but of course this will involve products of the antisymmetric part of the transport matrix itself). Both these last two formulas are only valid in the optimum or steady state. They are not valid in a general constrained state, where Eq. (61) is the only formula that should be used. This distinction between formulas that are valid generally and those that are only valid in the optimum state is an example of the point of the second question posed in the introduction, Question (4).

The connection with the preceding theory for nonequilibrium thermodynamics will also be given. The generic case is a subsystem with phase function ^xðGÞ that can be exchanged with a reservoir that imposes a thermodynamic force Xr . ) This case includes the standard equilibrium systems as well as nonequilibrium systems in steady flux. The probability of a state G is the exponential of the associated entropy, which is the total entropy. However, as usual it is assumed (it can be shown) [9] that the 40 phil attard points in the phase space of the subsystem have equal weight and therefore that the associated subsystem entropy may be set to zero.
