This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.

The review is devoted to the elucidation of the basic problems arising in the theoretical investigation of systems with Bose-Einstein condensate. Understanding these problems is necessary for the correct description of Bose-condensed systems.

The theory of large deviations deals with the probabilities of rare events that are exponentially small as a function of some parameter, e.g., the number of random components of a system or the time over which a stochastic system is observed.
