Interacting particle systems: hydrodynamic limit versus high density limit

Abstract

In this short survey we compare aspects of two different approaches for scaling limits of interacting particle systems, the hydrodynamic limit and the high density limit. We present some examples, comments and open problems on each approach for different scenarios: the law of large numbers, the central limit theorem, and the large deviations principle. It is given a special attention to a recent result [10] about the high density limit of a system exhibiting explosion of the total numbers of particles in finite time.
