A set of polynomials is said to be algebraically independent if there is no non-zero combination of them which is zero. Testing whether a given set of polynomials is algebraically independent efficiently is open in general.

This talk will outline standard issues and results related to small noise limits in noise-perturbed dynamics and two important reasonsfor studying these, and illustrate the same by examples from the work ofthe speaker and his collaborators.
