The distribution of paths for large fluctuations away from a stable state has been investigated, theoretically and by analog experiment. We have found critical broadening of the distribution of the paths coming to a cusp point representing the simplest generic singularity in the pattern of most probable (optimal) fluctuational paths in a non-equilibrium system. The critical behavior can be described by a Landau-type theory.
