Thermal fluctuations


The thermal energy of a system (or of a particular part or mode of motion in a system) has a mean value determined by the temperature and by the structure of the system. Statistical deviations about that mean are termed thermal fluctuations; these are of great importance in determining both rates of chemical reactions and error rates in nanomechanical systems.
