DESCRIPTION:I will give in this talk a basic overview of the theory of lar
ge deviations\, developed by Varadhan (Abel Prize 2007) in the 1970s\, and
its applications in statistical physics. In the first part of the talk\,
I will discuss the basics of this theory and its historical sources\, whic
h can be traced back in mathematics to Cramer (1938) and Sanov (1960) and\
, on the physics side\, to Boltzmann (1877) and Einstein (1910). In the se
cond part\, I will show how the theory can be applied to study equilibrium
and nonequilibrium systems and to express in a more general way many key
concepts of statistical physics in a clear and unified way.\n\nhttps://ind
