An increasingly studied class of systems comprise colloidal particles that move by self-propulsion rather than Brownian motion. Such dynamics violates time-reversal symmetry at the microscale, undermining one of the pillars on which equilibrium thermodynamics is built. What remains? I will address this question in the specific context of calculating the pressure of a system of active particles, defined as the force per unit area on a confining wall.
