Interacting Particle Systems

and Related Topics

August 27th – 31th, 2012

Villa Finaly, Florence, Italy


Interacting particle systems describe the behavior of systems with many components spatially localized, interacting with random local rules. The collective behavior of those processes is of great interest, as well as the stationary regime and the way the systems approach equilibrium. In this workshop will be discussed important issues like hydrodynamic limits, large deviations, phase transitions, metastability, etc.

The workshop will consist in talks given by experts on the area and informal discussions around open problems. It will include a poster session.
