Introduction to large deviation theory

Peixue Wu (UIUC math )

Abstract: In the first part of my talk, I will review large deviation principles and the well-known Gartner-Ellis theorem. The main technique is to make a detailed analysis of the log moment generating function and its Fenchel dual. As an application, we recover some large deviation principles we established before.
