Title: An unusual problem in large deviations
Speaker: S.R.S. Varadhan, Courant Institute
Date: 12 February 2009
Time: 4:00 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall - I, Dept. of Mathematics

We will investigate the large deviation rates for sums of the form $\sum_i f(x_i) g(x_{2i})$ where $\{x_i\}$ is a nice Markov process. In other words calculate

$\lim_{n\to\infty}{1\over n}\log E[\exp \sum_{i=1}^n f(x_i) g(x_{2i})]$

where $\{x_i\}$ is Markov Chain with transition probability $\pi(x, y)$.
