Mathematical Physics Seminar

Large deviations in non-equilibrium systems

Bernard Derrida - Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris

Location:  Zoom
Date & time: Wednesday, 12 October 2022 at 10:45AM - 11:45AM

Abstract: After a short introduction on large deviations illustrated by simple examples, and a review on several different approaches used to determine the large deviation functions of diffusive systems in their steady state, the talk will present a few recent results on how these large deviations functions are modified by weak contacts with the heat baths and on the influence of conditioning on the current on these large deviation functions.
