Finite-size fluctuations in interacting particle systems.

Abstract

Fluctuations may govern the fate of an interacting particle system even on the mean-field level. This is demonstrated via a three species cyclic trapping reaction with a large, yet finite number of particles, where the final number of particles N(f) scales logarithmically with the system size N, N(f) approximately ln N. Statistical fluctuations, that become… (More)
