# Stochastic action for tubes: Connecting path probabilities to measurement

@inproceedings{Kappler2020StochasticAF, title={Stochastic action for tubes: Connecting path probabilities to measurement}, author={Julian Kappler and R. Adhikari}, year={2020} }

The trajectories of diffusion processes are continuous but non-differentiable, and each occurs with vanishing probability. This introduces a gap between theory, where path probabilities are used in many contexts, and experiment, where only events with non-zero probability are measurable. Here we bridge this gap by considering the probability of diffusive trajectories to remain within a tube of small but finite radius around a smooth path. This probability can be measured in experiment, via the… CONTINUE READING
