Title:

Large Deviation,
Partition Function and Scaling Limits

Abstract:

Many scaling limits in
statistical mechanics and probability theory are
reduced to the study of suitable partition
functions that are often combinatorial
quantities counting certain configurations.
In many cases we may recast the analysis of a
partition function as a large deviation problem.
In particular, I discuss the scaling limits for
two models: selfavoiding random walk and
nonlinear Schrodinger Equation.
