• We consider the totally asymmetric simple exclusion process with \emph{soft-shock} initial particle density, which is a step function increasing in the direction of flow and the step size chosen small to admit KPZ scaling. The initial configuration is deterministic and the dynamics create a shock. We prove that the fluctuations of a particle at the macroscopic position of the shock converge to the maximum of two independent GOE Tracy-Widom random variables, which establishes a conjecture of… CONTINUE READING
