This restricts the analysis to times not too long, jt_xðx; tÞj ( jxj. If one has the entire correlation function, then one can predict the whole trajectory. The advantage of working in the intermediate regime is that one only need know a single quantity, namely, the transport coefficient corresponding to the maximal flux. Given this, one can of course still predict the behavior of the system over long time intervals by piecing together short segments in a Markov fashion. In this case the length of the segments should be tà , which is long enough to be beyond the inertial regime during which the system adjusts to the new structure, and short enough for the expansion to linear order in t to be valid.

11), immediately yields Sð1Þ ðxÞ ¼ Eðx; tÞ À 12 Gðx; tÞÀ1 : Fðx; tÞ2 ð87Þ The right-hand side must be independent of t. The asymmetry introduced by the expansion of Sð2Þ ðx0 ; xjtÞ about x (it no longer obeys the symmetry rules, Eq. (12)) affects the neglected higher-order terms. 28 phil attard The second entropy is maximized by the most likely position, which from the completed square evidently is x0 ðx; tÞ ¼ x À Gðx; tÞÀ1 Fðx; tÞ ð88Þ The parity and time scaling of these coefficients will be analyzed in the following subsection.

Onsager, in his first two papers, combined the general expression, Eq. (61), with the restricted one, Eq. (63), to make a variational principle that is almost the same as the present second entropy and that is generally valid. However, in the later paper with Machlup [32], he proposes variational principles based solely on the two restricted expressions and applies these to the constrained states where they have no physical meaning. Prigogine [11, 83] uses both restricted expressions in his work and interprets them as the rate of entropy production, which is not correct for the constrained states to which he applies them.
