The large deviations at level 2.5 are applied to Markov processes with absorbing states in order to obtain the explicit extinction rate of metastable quasi-stationary states in terms of their empirical time-averaged density and of their time-averaged empirical flows over a large time-window T. The standard spectral problem for the slowest relaxation mode can be recovered from the full optimization of the extinction rate over all these empirical observables and the equivalence can be understood…

The Ensemble of trajectories x (0 ≤ t ≤ T ) produced by the Markov generator M in a discrete configuration space can be considered as ’Canonical’ for the following reasons : (C1) the probability of

Conditioning diffusion processes with killing rates

When the unconditioned process is a diffusion submitted to a space-dependent killing rate k(x→) , various conditioning constraints can be imposed for a finite time horizon T. We first analyze the

Linear Response Theory and Fluctuation Dissipation Theorem for Systems with Absorbing States

The Fluctuation Dissipation Theorem (FDT) is one of the fundamental results of statistical mechanics and is a powerful tool that connects the macroscopic properties to microscopic dynamics. The FDT

Quasi-stationary distributions for stochastic processes with an absorbing state

We study the long-time behaviour of stochastic models with an absorbing state, conditioned on survival. For a large class of processes, in which saturation prevents unlimited growth, statistical

The inference of Markov models from data on stochastic dynamical trajectories over the large time-window T is revisited via the large deviations at level 2.5 for the time-empirical density and the

Revisiting the Ruelle thermodynamic formalism for Markov trajectories with application to the glassy phase of random trap models

The Ruelle thermodynamic formalism for dynamical trajectories over the large time T corresponds to the large deviation theory for the information per unit time of the trajectories probabilities. The

Large deviations at various levels for run-and-tumble processes with space-dependent velocities and space-dependent switching rates

One-dimensional run-and-tumble processes may converge towards some localized non-equilibrium steady states when the two velocities and/or the two switching rates are space-dependent. A long dynamical

Nonequilibrium Markov Processes Conditioned on Large Deviations

We consider the problem of conditioning a Markov process on a rare event and of representing this conditioned process by a conditioning-free process, called the effective or driven process. The basic

Quasi-stationary distributions and population processes

This survey concerns the study of quasi-stationary distributions with a specific focus on models derived from ecology and population dynamics. We are concerned with the long time behavior of

Chemical reaction networks offer a natural nonlinear generalisation of linear Markov jump processes on a finite state-space. In this paper, we analyse the dynamical large deviations of such models,
