Abstract: We present an exact relationship between the entropy production and the distinguishability of a process from its time-reverse, quantified by the relative entropy between forward and backward states. The relationship is shown to remain valid for a wide family of initial conditions, such as canonical, constrained canonical, multi-canonical and grand canonical distributions, as well as both for classical and quantum systems.
