In this paper we propose a generalized model for the motion of a two-species self-driven objects ranging from a scenario of a completely random environment of particles of negligible excluded volume to a more deterministic regime of rigid objects in an environment. Each cell of the system has a maximum occupation level called σ_{max}. Both species move in opposite directions. The probability of any given particle to move to a neighboring cell depends on the occupation of this cell according to…

Coexistence and crossover phenomena in a Fermi-like model of particles in counterflowing streams.
A two-dimensional extension of a previously defined one-dimensional version of a model of particles in counterflowing streams, which considers an adapted Fermi-Dirac distribution to describe the transition probabilities and shows that for a sufficiently low level of randomness, the system can relax to a mobile self-organized steady state of counterflow or to an immobile state if the system has an average density near a certain crossover value.
Phase behaviors of counterflowing stream of pedestrians with site-exchange in local vision and environment
Abstract This paper presents a cellular automaton model of counterflowing stream of pedestrians, in which pedestrians walking in opposite directions are able to exchange position under certain local


Statistics, distillation, and ordering emergence in a two-dimensional stochastic model of particles in counterflowing streams.
A stochastic model which describes two species of particles moving in counterflow is proposed, and the formation of patterns of lanes which reach the steady state regardless of the initial conditions used for the evolution is observed.
Stochastic model of self-driven two-species objects inspired by particular aspects of a pedestrian dynamics
In this work we propose a model to describe the fluctuations of self-driven objects (species A) walking against a crowd of particles in the opposite direction (species B) in order to simulate the
Freezing by heating in a driven mesoscopic system
We investigate a simple model corresponding to particles driven in opposite directions and interacting via a repulsive potential. The particles move off-lattice on a periodic strip and are subject to
Nature of the condensate in mass transport models.
The criterion for the occurrence of a condensation transition is derived, the precise nature of the shape and the size of the condensate in the condensed phase are analyzed and the results are interpreted within the framework of sums of random variables.

A complete theoretical description of a model that is capable of showing a noise reduction of current fluctuations in the time domain, and a reduction of the power spectral density in the frequency domain, in semiconductor devices as predicted by previous experimental work is shown.
Statistical fluctuations for the noise current from random telegraph signals in semiconductor devices: Monte Carlo computer simulations and best fits
Random Telegraph Signals (RTS) has become a major source of variability in the electrical behavior of modern transistors. The major contribution of this work is a new model based on a Monte Carlo
An appropriate model for the noise power spectrum produced by traps at the Si–SiO2interface: a study of the influence of a time-dependent Fermi level
In this work we have developed an appropriate and novel model for computing the contribution of all traps at the Si–SiO2 interface to the low frequency (LF) noise power spectrum. In our approach we
Onset of Spatial Structures in Biased Diffusion of Two Species
We consider a stochastic lattice gas with equal numbers of oppositely charged particles, diffusing under the influence of a uniform external electric field and the excluded-volume condition.
Band formation in mixtures of oppositely charged colloids driven by an ac electric field.
It is shown that band formation is linked to the time scale associated with collisions between particles moving in opposite directions and spontaneously returns to the equilibrium mixture after the field is turned off.
Simulation of counterflow pedestrian dynamics using spheropolygons.
A method for simulating pedestrian dynamics in a large dense crowd of spheropolygons adapted to the cross section of the chest and arms of a pedestrian, taking into account viscoelastic contact forces, contact friction, and ground-reaction forces is developed.
