We will present inter-bank borrowing and lending models based on systems of coupled diffusions. First-passage models will 
be reviewed and applied to mean-field type models in order to illustrate systemic events and compute their probability via 
large deviation theory. Then, a game feature will be introduced and Nash equilibria will be derived or approximated using the 
Mean Field Game approach.
