Introduction to Condensation in the Zero Range Process (ZRP) and My Research
- Event time: 11:30am
- Event date: 5th March 2014
- Speaker: Justin Whitehouse (Formerly School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
I will give an introduction to the ZRP and its factorised steady state. Then I will (attempt) to show the condition for condensation in the ZRP. Finally, if time permits, I will talk about the condensation transition in a related model that I have been researching over the last year. This condensate is interesting/unusual in that it travels through the system and contains effectively all of the system's mass.
This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
