Publication# Interfaces of the one-dimensional voter models

Abstract

We show that for a voter model on {0,1}Z corresponding to a random walk with kernel p(·) and starting from unanimity to the right and opposing unanimity to the left, a tight interface between 0's and 1's exists if p(·) has second moments but does not if p(·) fails to have α moment for some α < 2. We study the evolution of the interface for the one-dimensional voter model. We show that if the random walk kernel associated with the voter model has finite γth moment for some γ > 3, then the evolution of the interface boundaries converges weakly to a Brownian motion. This extends recent work of Newman, Ravishankar and Sun. Our result is optimal in the sense that a finite γth moment is necessary for this convergence for all γ ∈ (0, 3). We also obtain relatively sharp estimates for the tail distribution of the size of the equilibrium interface, extending earlier results of Cox and Durrett.

Brownian motion

Brownian motion is the random motion of particles suspended in a medium (a liquid or a gas).
This motion pattern typically consists of random fluctuations in a particle's position inside a fluid s

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

Heavy-tailed distribution

In probability theory, heavy-tailed distributions are probability distributions whose tails are not exponentially bounded: that is, they have heavier tails than the exponential distribution. In many
