Title:
Generalization of thermodynamic potentials including information 
Abstract:
In this work we analyze the connection between information theory and thermodynamics. Three different potentials are presented, all related to the Kullback–Leibler divergence. These potentials represent three different conditions of energy and information exchange between a reservoir and a subsystem. The first potential describes a situation where the two systems are exchanging energy without any external control. The second potential considers the situation where the reservoir can get informati...    »
