A model of a non-equilibrium ideal Fermi gas has been devised which is simple enough to be treated analytically. Its properties are compared with a matching equilibrium gas and functions for “disorder” and “complexity” are defined and evaluated. The non-equilibrium entropy increases with “order” up to a certain particle number. Beyond this, the system reverts to the more usual behaviour of entropy increasing with “disorder”. But this tendency is only slight in this model.
