Title:The Smoluchowskii-Kramers approximation and the large deviation principle for SPDEs
Seminar:Probability and Financial Mathematics Seminar
Speaker:Sandra Cerrai, University of Maryland, College Park and University of Florence, Italy
Abstract:
We study the limiting behavior of the large deviation action functional and of the quasi-potential for a stochastic semi-linear wave equation in presence of a small mass. We show that the small noise asymptotic (large deviation) is consistent with the small mass asymptotic (Smoluchowskii-Kramers approximation).
