We consider the exit problem for small white noise perturbation of a smooth dynamical system on the plane in the neighborhood of a hyperbolic critical point. We show that if the distribution of the initial condition has a scaling limit then the exit distribution and exit time also have a joint scaling limit as the noise intensity goes to zero. The limiting law is computed explicitly. The result completes the theory of noisy heteroclinic networks in two dimensions. The analysis is based on… 
Tails of exit times from unstable equilibria on the line
TLDR
A revealing elementary proof of a result proved earlier using heavy machinery from Malliavin calculus is given and precise vanishing noise asymptotics are obtained for the tail of the exit time and for the exit distribution conditioned on atypically long exits.
Scaling limit for the diffusion exit problem
TLDR
This dissertation proves a scaling limit for the exit of a domain problem of a small noise system with underlying hyperbolic dynamics and proposes a pathwise approach based on the theory of normal forms combined with geometrical arguments to provide the state of the art results in related problems.
Scaling limit for escapes from unstable equilibria in the vanishing noise limit: Nontrivial Jordan block case
We consider white noise perturbations of a nonlinear dynamical system in the neighborhood of an unstable critical point with linearization given by a Jordan block of full dimension. For the
Exit time asymptotics for dynamical systems with fast random switching near an unstable equilibrium
We consider the exit problem for a one-dimensional system with random switching near an unstable equilibrium point of the averaged drift. In the infinite switching rate limit, we show that the exit
Scaling limits for conditional diffusion exit problems and asymptotics for nonlinear elliptic equations
The goal of this paper is to supplement the large deviation principle of the Freidlin–Wentzell theory on exit problems for diffusion processes with results of classical central limit theorem kind.

Long exit times near a repelling equilibrium
For a smooth vector field in a neighborhood of a critical point with all positive eigenvalues of the linearization, we consider the associated dynamics perturbed by white noise. Using Malliavin

Malliavin calculus approach to long exit times from an unstable equilibrium
For a one-dimensional smooth vector field in a neighborhood of an unstable equilibrium, we consider the associated dynamics perturbed by small noise. Using Malliavin calculus tools, we obtain precise
Scaling Limit for the Diffusion Exit Problem, a Survey
In this review, an outline of the so called Freidlin-Wentzell theory and its recent extensions is given. Broadly, this theory studies the exponential rate at which the probabilities of rare events
