The importance of large deviations in non-equilibrium systems
  AlbaNova and Nordita Colloquium

Thursday 08 September 2016
from 15:15 to 16:15
Speaker : Bernard Derrida (Collège de France and Ecole Normale Supérieure)
Abstract : Several symmetries of non equilibrium systems such as fluctuation theorems or work relations can be formulated in terms of large deviation functions. After a brief review of these general properties the talk will focus on a series of results obtained over the last decade on the large deviation functions of diffusive systems. It will also list a number of open issues for diffusive and non diffusive systems.
