A variational formula for positive functionals of a Poisson random measure and brownian motion is proved. The formula is based on the relative entropy representation for exponential integrals, and can be used to prove large deviation type estimates. A general large deviation result is proved, and illustrated with an example.

A discrete time stochastic model for a multiagent system given in terms of a large collection of interacting Markov chains is studied. The evolution of the interacting particles is described through a time inhomogeneous transition probability kernel that depends on the ‘gradient’ of the potential field. The particles, in turn, dynamically modify the potential field through their cumulative input. Interacting Markov processes of the above form have been suggested as models for active biological transport...
