Maximum Caliber: a principle of nonequilibrium statistical physics. Much of today’s modeling of kinetics in chemistry and biology is about kinetic averages — of rates, velocities or fluxes. But because of important advances in single-molecule, single-cell, and few-particle experimental technologies, there is now also much interest in understanding whole kinetic rate distributions. We are exploring Maximum Caliber, a principled approach to theory and modeling of rate distributions.
