From mesoscale back to microscale: Reconstruction schemes for coarse-grained stochastic lattice systems

José Trashorras and Dimitrios Tsagkarogiannis


Starting from a microscopic stochastic lattice spin system and the corresponding coarse-grained model we introduce a mathematical strategy to recover microscopic information given the coarse-grained data. We define "reconstructed" microscopic measures satisfying two conditions:
(i) they are close in specific relative entropy to the initial microscopic equilibrium measure conditioned on the coarse-grained data and
(ii) their sampling is computationally advantageous when compared to sampling directly from the conditioned microscopic equilibrium measure.
