A fluctuation theorem for Floquet quantum master equations
Abstract
We present a fluctuation theorem for Floquet quantum master equations. This is a detailed version of the famous GallavottiCohen theorem. In contrast to the latter theorem, which involves the probability distribution of the total heat current, the former involves the joint probability distribution of positive and negative heat currents and can be used to derive the latter. A quantum twolevel system driven by a periodic external field is used to verify this result.
