Abelian Networks


Abelian networks a class of models from statistical physics introduced as models to help understand the complex behavior exhibited by forest fires and avalanches. In this talk we will introduce a few different Abelian networks including activated random walk and the stochastic sandpile model. We will discuss the techniques used to study them and discuss some recent results.
