Two Ways to Solve ASEP

The purpose of this chapter is to describe two approaches to compute exact formulas (which are amenable to asymptotic analysis) for the probability distribution of the current of particles past a given site in the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) with step initial data. The first approach is via a variant of the coordinate Bethe Ansatz and was developed in work of Tracy and Widom in 2008–2009, while the second approach is via a rigorous version of the replica trick and was developed in work of Borodin, Sasamoto and the author in 2012.
