    The article examines whether equilibrium methods, which are based on pressure fluctuation, are worse than the methods of nonequilibrium for viscosity calculation. It states the use of nonequilibrium methods and the formulas in computing shear viscosity, the Green Kubo (GK) and Einstein relation....

    The fluctuation theorem (FT), which is a recent achievement in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, has been suggested to be useful for measuring the driving forces of motor proteins. As an example of this application, we performed single-molecule experiments on F1-ATPase, which is a rotary...
