Large Deviations of the Current in Non-Equilibrium Systems

MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR
Topic:Large Deviations of the Current in Non-Equilibrium Systems
Speaker:Thierry Bodineau
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.
