Switching paths for Ising models with long-range interaction

Dirr, Nicolas P. 2008. Switching paths for Ising models with long-range interaction. In: Mörters, Peter, Moser, Roger, Penrose, Mathew, Schwetlick, Hartmut and Zimmer, Johannes eds. Analysis and stochastics of growth processes and interface models, Oxford Scholarship Online, pp. 244-265. (10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199239252.003.0011)

The chapter discusses a multiscale model for a two-phases material. The model is a stochastic process on the finest scale. The effective behaviour on larger scales is governed by deterministic nonlinear evolution equations. Due to the stochasticity on the finest scale, deviations from these limit evolution laws can happen with small probability. The chapter describes the most likely among those deviations in two situations: (i) the switching from one stable equilibrium of the evolution equation to another one, (ii) enforced, fast motion on a manifold of stationary solutions.
