  • AbstractWe give a non-trivial upper bound for the critical density when stabilizing i.i.d. distributed sandpiles on the lattice $${\mathbb{Z}^2}$$Z2 . We also determine the asymptotic spectral gap, asymptotic mixing time, and prove a cutoff phenomenon for the recurrent state abelian sandpile model on the torus $${\left(\mathbb{Z}/m\mathbb{Z}\right)^2}$$Z/mZ2 . The techniques use analysis of the space of functions on $${\mathbb{Z}^2}$$Z2 which are harmonic modulo 1. In the course of our… CONTINUE READING
