**A Basic Introduction to Large Deviations: Theory, Applications, Simulations**

by

**Hugo Touchette**-

**arXiv**

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.
