In recent years, we have witnessed an impressive accumulation of fundamental
developments in Non-equilibrium Statistical Physics, which have deepened our
understanding of fluctuations. We now know how to quantify whether fluctuations are
rare or not, what is their information content and their deep link to thermodynamics.
On a more applied level, the need to extract relevant information from non-equilibrium
fluctuations becomes more and more important in a variety of fields, as different as
Nanotechnology, Computer Science or Biology.
We would like this workshop to contribute to reduce the gap between the fundamental
developments and their applications. For this reason, we have invited three experts in
this field to make as clear and pedagogical presentations as possible, in the form of
a set of lectures. These lectures should be accessible to a broad audience and for
this reason, we plan to have them videotaped and put online. There will be no oral or
poster presentations from participants other than the speakers, but we plan to leave
ample time for discussions.
