We are mainly interested in exclusion processes, zero-range processes, activated random walks, greedy policies, contact processes, and stochastic networks.
In this context, we mainly look into properties such as invariant measures, scaling limits, phase transition, self-organized criticality, stability.
To that end, we use several tools such as: coupling from the past, resampling, stochastic abelianness, random algorithms, large deviations, renewal times.
