Event details

Whenever some stochastic process is coarse-grained, the resulting description is usually non-Markovian in nature, i.e., it has some "memory" of the past. I will discuss a Non-Markovian extension to the venerable Asymmetric Exclusion Process (ASEP), and explain how we can devise a rejection-free simulation algorithm to help us understand the onset of spontaneous clumping (condensation) in this model.
