We study the metastable behaviour of a stochastic system of particles with hard-core interactions in a high-density regime. Particles sit on the vertices of a bipartite graph. New particles appear subject to a neighbourhood exclusion constraint, while existing particles disappear, all according to independent Poisson clocks. We consider the regime in which the appearance rates are much larger than the disappearance rates, and there is a slight imbalance between the appearance rates on the two… 

Metastability of the three-state Potts model with general interactions

We consider the Potts model on a two-dimensional periodic rectangular lattice with general coupling constants J ij > 0, where i, j ∈ { 1 , 2 , 3 } are the possible spin values (or colors). The

We consider the ferromagnetic q -state Potts model on a finite grid with non-zero external field and periodic boundary conditions. The system evolves according to Glauber-type dynamics described by the

Metastability of Synchronous and Asynchronous Dynamics

Metastability is a ubiquitous phenomenon in nature, which interests several fields of natural sciences. Since metastability is a genuine non-equilibrium phenomenon, its description in the framework

We consider the Ising model on the hexagonal lattice evolving according to Metropolis dynamics. We study its metastable behavior in the limit of vanishing temperature when the system is immersed in a

From adaptive dynamics to adaptive walks

This work considers an asexually reproducing population on a finite type space whose evolution is driven by exponential birth, death and competition rates, as well as the possibility of mutation at a birth event, and modelled as a measure-valued Markov process.

In this paper we analyze metastability and nucleation in the context of a local version of the Kawasaki dynamics for the two-dimensional strongly anisotropic Ising lattice gas at very low

Adding edge dynamics to bipartite random-access networks

This work considers random-access networks with nodes representing transmitter-receiver pairs whose signals interfere with each other depending on their vicinity, and analyzes dynamic interference graphs where the edges are allowed to appear and disappear over time.

Extinction Time of Non-Markovian Self-Similar Processes, Persistence, Annihilation of Jumps and the Fréchet Distribution

We start by providing an explicit characterization and analytical properties, including the persistence phenomena, of the distribution of the extinction time $$\mathbb {T}$$T of a class of
