One obtains Eðx; tÞ ¼ 12½A þ A0 þ B þ BT Š : x2 0 Fðx; tÞ ¼ ½A þ B Š : x T ð136Þ ð137Þ Fy ðx; tÞ ¼ ½A þ BŠ : x ð138Þ Gðx; tÞ ¼ A0 ð139Þ Gy ðx; tÞ ¼ A ð140Þ and Gz ðx; tÞ ¼ BT ð141Þ These expressions can be used to confirm the consistency between the linear and the nonlinear results given earlier. E. Exchange with a Reservoir Now the previously isolated subsystem is allowed to exchange x with an external reservoir that applies a thermodynamic force Xr . Following the linear analysis (Section II F), denote the subsystem thermodynamic force by Xs ðxÞ (this was denoted simply XðxÞ for the earlier isolated system).

The scaling of Gðx; tÞ motivates writing Gz ðx; tÞ $ 1 z 1 g ðxÞ þ gz ðxÞ þ gz ðxÞ þ ^tgz ðxÞ 2 3 jtj 0 t 1 ð113Þ In view of the parity rule (95), gz and gz are symmetric matrices and gz and gz 0 2 1 3 are antisymmetric matrices. The derivative of the second entropy force is qFðx; tÞ ¼ Gðx; tÞ þ Gz ðx; tÞ qx ð114Þ which in the intermediate regime becomes qf 0 ðxÞ qf 1 ðxÞ 1 1 þ^t ¼ ½g ðxÞþ gz ðxފ þ ½g ðxÞ þ gz ðxފ þ g ðxÞ þ gz ðxÞ þ^tgz ðxÞ 0 1 2 3 2 qx qx jtj 0 t 1 ð115Þ Clearly, the first two bracketed terms have to individually vanish.

Neglecting it in the previous analysis yields the leading contributions. D. Linear Limit of Nonlinear Coefficients In the linear limit, differentiation of the second entropy, Eq.
