Mixing rates of particle systems with energy exchange

A fundamental problem of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics is the derivation of macroscopic transport equations in the hydrodynamic limit. The rigorous study of such limits requires detailed

Asymptotic analysis of a particle system with mean-field interaction

We study a system of $N$ interacting particles on $\bf{Z}$. The stochastic dynamics consists of two components: a free motion of each particle (independent random walks) and a pair-wise interaction

Phase transitions in nonequilibrium stochastic particle systems with local conservation laws

Stochastic particle systems far from equilibrium show a great variety of critical phenomena already in one dimension. We concentrate on models where the number of particles is locally conserved. In

Exact formulas for two interacting particles and applications in particle systems with duality

We consider two particles performing continuous-time nearest neighbor random walk on $\mathbb Z$ and interacting with each other when they are at neighboring positions. Typical examples are two

Diffusive fluctuations for one-dimensional totally asymmetric interacting random dynamics

We study central limit theorems for a totally asymmetric, one-dimensional interacting random system. The models we work with are the Aldous-Diaconis-Hammersley process and the related stick model.

Mixing time and cutoff for one dimensional particle systems

We survey recent results concerning the total-variation mixing time of the simple exclusion process on the segment (symmetric and asymmetric) and a continuum analog, the simple random walk on the

Generalized Poisson-Kac processes and hydrodynamic modeling of systems of interacting particles I - Theory

This article analyzes the formulation of space-time continuous hyperbolic hydrodynamic models for systems of interacting particles moving on a lattice, by connecting their local stochastic lattice

Diffusive Fluctuations for One-Dimensional Totally Asymmetric Interacting Random Dynamics

AbstractWe study central limit theorems for a totally asymmetric, one-dimensional interacting random system. The models we work with are the Aldous–Diaconis–Hammersley process and the related stick

Stochastic Dynamics of Discrete Curves and Multi-Type Exclusion Processes

This study deals with continuous limits of interacting one-dimensional diffusive systems, arising from stochastic distortions of discrete curves with various kinds of coding representations. These

Stochastic Burgers Equation via Energy Solutions from Non-Stationary Particle Systems.

The primary objective of the current article is to provide a first true result in establishing the stochastic Burgers equation as a continuum model for the dynamics of the density fluctuations for
