In this chapter the authors discuss the application of simulation techniques to the study of fluctuational escape and related phenomena in nonliner optical systems: that is, situations where a large deviation of the system from an equilibrium state occurs under the influence of relatively weak noise present in the system. The authors are interested primarily in the analysis of situations where large deviations lead to new nontrivial behaviour or to a transition to a different state.
