Résumé : Scattering theory is complemented by recent results on full counting statistics, the multivariate fluctuation relation for currents, and time asymmetry in temporal disorder characterized by the Connes-Narnhofer-Thirring entropy per unit time, in order to establish relationships with the thermodynamics of quantum transport. Fluctuations in the bosonic or fermionic currents flowing across an open system in contact with particle reservoirs are described by their cumulant generating function, which obeys the multivariate fluctuation relation as the consequence of microreversibility. Time asymmetry in temporal disorder is shown to manifest itself out of equilibrium in the difference between a time-reversed coentropy and the Connes-Narnhofer-Thirring entropy per unit time. This difference is shown to be equal to the thermodynamic entropy production for ideal quantum gases of bosons and fermions. The results are illustrated for a two-terminal circuit.
