|MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR|
|Topic:||Large Deviations of the Current in Non-Equilibrium Systems|
|Affiliation:||Ecole Normale Superieure, France and Member, School of Mathematics|
|Date:||Wednesday, January 28|
|Time/Room:||11:15am - 12:15pm/S-101|
Using the hydrodynamic limit theory, we will review the large deviations of the heat current through a diffusive system maintained off equilibrium by two heat baths at unequal temperatures. We will also discuss a toy model for dissipative dynamics related to granular materials.
