Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process(ASEP) and Two-species Exclusion Process.

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Eunghyun Lee, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Nov 19 2008, 12:10PM

The asymmetric simple exclusion process(ASEP) is a stochastic model for transport phenomena and the two-species exclusion process is the reaction-diffusion process. We will survey the ASEP and some two-species exclusion processes, and overview a technique to solve the equations describing the models. The ASEP and each of the two-species reaction-diffusion processes have their own boundary conditions which describe two-particle interactions. An idea from physics gives a method to obtain the probability of finding particles at sites at a given time. Also, I will introduce a special two-species exclusion process where each type moves in the opposite direction.
