This paper gives a didactic introduction to the problem of metastability by taking elementary examples from the theory of random walks. Some mathematical tools of the theory are presented briefly with precise references. The main ideas used in recent results about the conservative case, are discussed in the last section, through simplified models of random walks.

Abstract

This paper gives a didactic introduction to the problem of metastability by taking elementary examples from the theory of random walks. Some mathematical tools of the theory are presented briefly with precise references. The main ideas used in recent results about the conservative case, are discussed in the last section, through simplified models of random walks.
