 Chanwoo Oh, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In this talk, I'll prove metastability of the zero range process on a finite set without using capacity estimates. The proof is based on the existence of certain auxiliary functions. One such function is inspired by Evans and Tabrizian's article, "Asymptotics for the Kramers-Smouchowski equations". This function is the solution of a certain equation involving the infinitesimal generator of the...   More >
