# Colloquium: John R. Klein (Wayne State U.) - "Algebraic Topology and Fluctuations"

2:40pm to 3:40pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

This talk will investigate a certain class of continuous time Markov processes using machinery from algebraic topology. To each such process, we will associate a homological observable, the average current, which is a measurement of the net flow of probability of the system. We show that the average current quantizes in the low temperature limit. We also explain how the quantized version admits a topological description.
