Rare events and phase transitions in reaction-diffusion systems

Kamenev, A (Minnesota)
Wednesday 17 December 2008, 15:30-16:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I shall discuss a way to evaluate tails of the probability distribution functions in stochastic reaction-diffusion systems. The method is based on the semi-classical treatment of a proper ``quantum'' field theory, which may be associated with the reaction-diffusion models. The same set of ideas may be applied to a classification of non-equilibrium phase transitions, taking place in these models.
