# Statics and dynamics of Exclusion Processes (I)

#### Statics and dynamics of Exclusion Processes (I)

- Event time: 11:30am
- Event date: 9th November 2011
- Speaker: Professor Martin Evans (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

### Event details

In this theory club we will define and motivate the asymmetric exclusion process which is a stochastic model of particles moving through a lattice with repulsive interactions. In particular, I shall consider the case of open boundaries where a current of particles flows through the system thus giving rise to a nonequilibrium stationary state. I shall show how to derive the hierarchy of correlation functions. Then I shall develop a simple mean field theory which gives an interesting phase diagram.
