N ov 2 00 4 Quasi-stationary simulation of the contact process

Abstract

We review a recently devised Monte Carlo simulation method for the direct study of quasi-stationary properties of stochastic processes with an absorbing state. The method is used to determine the static correlation function and the interparticle gap-length distribution in the critical one-dimensional contact process. We also find evidence for power-law… (More)
