Multi-particle non-equilibrium dynamics in two-channel asymmetric exclusion processes with narrow entrances is investigated theoretically. Particles move on two parallel lattices in opposite directions without changing them, while the channels are coupled only at the boundaries. A particle cannot enter the corresponding lane if the exit site of the other lane is occupied. Stationary phase diagrams, particle currents and densities are calculated in a mean-field approximation. It is shown that…

TLDR
A system composed of two parallel totally asymmetric simple exclusion processes with open boundaries, where the particles move in the two lanes in opposite directions and are allowed to jump to the other lane with rates inversely proportional to the length of the system, undergoes a discontinuous phase transition.

Two-channel totally asymmetric simple exclusion processes
TLDR
A simple approximate theory, that describes the particle dynamics in vertical clusters of two corresponding parallel sites exactly and neglects the correlations between different vertical clusters, is developed and it is found that there are three stationary state phases, although the phase boundaries and stationary properties strongly depend on inter-channel coupling.
Theoretical investigation of totally asymmetric exclusion processes on lattices with junctions

TLDR
In addition to the known one-channel phases, two new regions are found, in particular one, where the total density is fixed, but the filling of the individual chains changes back and forth, with a preference for strongly different densities.
