Large deviations and rare events in physics and biology

Lunedì, 23 Settembre, 2013

This conference aims at commemorating and honoring our dear friend and colleague Giovanni Paladin (1958-1996) by bringing together scientists working in statistical mechanics and dynamical systems, scientific disciplines which were close to his interests and very dear to him.
Large Deviations Theory, whose applications to turbulence and disordered systems are among the main contributions by Giovanni, is nowadays a well established theoretical framework allowing systematic treatments of rare events and fluctuations going beyond the Gaussian approximation in several subjects. This conference aims at offering to scientists, coping with rare events and large deviations in different contexts from physics to biology, the occasion to exchange ideas, tools and techniques.

September 23 - 25, Rome Italy
The conference will be held in the AULA CONVERSI of Sapienza Universita' di Roma.
