摘要:Many quantities in statistical mechanics are defined in terms of statistical averages and Large Deviation theory provides a useful tool for analyzing their behavior. We will look at some examples.

 

报告人简介:Professor S. R. Srinivasa Varadhan is the Frank J. Gould Professor of Science and a professor of mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. He received his Ph.D in 1963 from the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata with Professor C. R. Rao as his advisor. He then came to Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU, for postdoctoral studies and in 1966 joined its faculty. He has remained there, serving twice as its director. He is a probabilist who has worked on different aspects of stochastic processes. A major part of his work is related to large deviations, which estimates the probability of rare events. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of London and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He is recipient of many awards including the Birkhoff Prize (SIAM & AMS), Steele Prize (AMS), Abel Prize (Norwegian Academy of Arts and Science), U.S. National Medal of Science and Padma Bhushan (Republic of India).
