I will review some of the recent developments in the theoretical and mathematical aspects of the nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of climate dynamics. At the intersection between statistical mechanics, turbulence, and geophysical fluid dynamics, this field is a wonderful new playground for applied mathematics involving large deviation theory, stochastic partial differential equations, and diffusion MonteCarlo algorithms. We will discuss two classes of applications. First extreme heat waves as an example of a rare events with a huge impacts. Second rare trajectories that suddenly drive the complex dynamical system from one attractor to a completely different one, related to abrupt climate changes.
