Large deviations for occupation time profiles of random interlacements. (English) Zbl 1314.60078
Authors’ abstract: We derive a large deviation principle for the density profile of occupation times of random interlacements at a fixed level in a large box of \({\mathbb Z}^d\), \(d \geq 3.\) As an application, we analyze the asymptotic behavior of the probability that atypically high values of the density profile insulate a macroscopic body in a large box. As a step in this program, we obtain a similar large deviation principle for the occupation-time measure of Brownian interlacements at a fixed level in a large box of \({\mathbb R}^d\) , and we derive a new identity for the Laplace transform of the occupation-time measure, which is based on the analysis of certain Schrödinger semigroups.
