## Probability Seminar: Speeds in (partially) asymmetric processes

• Date: 11/04/2009
Lecturer(s):
Omer Angel (University of British Columbia)
Location:

University of British Columbia

Description:

Start a totally asymmetric simple exclusion process with a second class particle at 0, particles to its left and holes to its right. If Xt is the location at time t of the second class particle, then Xt / t converges a.s. to a uniform [-1,1] random variable.

I will prove an analogous result for partially asymmetric exclusion process (with Balázs and Seppäläinen), and explain why this is interesting (with Amir and Valkó).

Schedule:

3:00pm - 4:00pm, WMAX 110.
