Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics near equilibrium;
computing higher order terms.

ABSTRACT. Using SRB measures to describe nonequilibrium steady states, one can in
principle compute the coefficients of expansions around equilibrium. We
discuss here how this can be done in practice, and how the results correspond
to the zero noise limit when there is a stochastic perturbation. The
approach used is formal rather than rigorous.
