TITLE: Large and Moderate Deviations for Some Measure-Valued Processes. Part II
ABSTRACT: In this talk Moderate Deviations are considered for a class of stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs). Since two important population models, super-Brownian Motion and Fleming-Viot Process, can be represented by SPDEs, then, as an application, Moderate Deviations are derived for these models as well. I will begin by characterizing Central Limit Theorem (Normal Deviations), Large and Moderate Deviations by looking at the difference between the calculated mean and the actual mean. The first talk reviewed Large Deviations for the above SPDEs. Moderate Deviations will be covered in the second talk.
