Benny Avelin: Geometric characterization of Eyring-Kramers formula

Time: Mon 2023-02-13 15.15 - 16.15

Location: KTH, 3721 (Lindstedtsvägen. 25)

Participating: Benny Avelin (Uppsala)


In this talk I will outline the recent result together with Vesa Julin and Lauri Viitasaari concerning a characterization of the Eyring-Kramers formula that works also at degenerate saddle points, without resorting to Taylor expansions. I will explain how we used the ideas from geometric function theory to prove a very general capacity estimate.
