Publication# Metastability of reversible condensed zero range processes on a finite set

Abstract

Let r : S x S -> R+ be the jump rates of an irreducible random walk on a finite set S, reversible with respect to some probability measure m. For alpha > 1, let g : N -> R+ be given by g(0) = 0, g(1) = 1, g(k) = (k/k - 1)(alpha), k >= 2. Consider a zero range process on S in which a particle jumps from a site x, occupied by k particles, to a site y at rate g(k)r(x, y). Let N stand for the total number of particles. In the stationary state, as N up arrow infinity, all particles but a finite number accumulate on one single site. We show in this article that in the time scale N1+alpha the site which concentrates almost all particles evolves as a random walk on S whose transition rates are proportional to the capacities of the underlying random walk.

Random walk

In mathematics, a random walk is a random process that describes a path that consists of a succession of random steps on some mathematical space.
An elementary example of a random walk is the rando

Dynamic range compression

Dynamic range compression (DRC) or simply compression is an audio signal processing operation that reduces the volume of loud sounds or amplifies quiet sounds, thus reducing or compressing an audio

Randomness

In common usage, randomness is the apparent or actual lack of definite pattern or predictability in information. A random sequence of events, symbols or steps often has no order and does not follow a
