The complex story of simple exclusion

  • S. R. S. Varadhan


The simple exclusion model serves as perhaps the simplest model of an interacting system of particles that still exhibits some of the complex behavior one expects from an interacting system. The aim of this expository article is to describe, for various simple exclusion models, the different types of results that are known that fall within the framework of hydrodynamic scaling limits.
