DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Giacomo Di GesÃ¹\nhosted by M. Beiglboeck\, N. Beresty
cki\, L. Erdoes\, J. Maas\nAbstract: We consider the Allen-Cahn equation o
n the one-dimensional torus\, perturbed by a small spacetime white noise.
The deterministic equation is a nonlinear PDE\, which can be seen as a gra
dient flow with respect to a double-well energy. If a small noise is added
\, the typical picture of a metastable dynamics emerges: the system quickl
y reaches a local equilibrium in one of the two wells\; this state endures
for an exponentially long time\, until a sufficiently large stochastic fl
uctuation enables the system to overcome the energetic barrier separating
the two wells. This behavior produces a slowdown in the relaxation to the
equilibrium measure\, reflected e.g. by an exponentially small spectral ga
p. In this talk I will present a technique which provides a formula for th
e precise asymptotic behavior of the spectral gap\, showing that the prefa
ctor is given by a suitable Fredholm determinant. The formula shows that t
he gap behaves like twice the inverse of the metastable transition time fr
om one well to the other.
