Abstract

We study the full counting statistics for multi-terminal quantum dots. We show that the microscopic reversibility naturally results in a symmetry of the cumulant generating function, which generalizes the fluctuation theorem in the context of the coherent quantum transport. Using this symmetry, we derive the fluctuation-dissipation theorem and the Onsager-Casimir relation in the linear transport regime and the universal relations among nonlinear transport coefficients.
