**Interacting Particle Systems**

by Stefan Grosskinsky

**Publisher**: University of Warwick 2009**Number of pages**: 56

**Description**:

Interacting particle systems (IPS) are models for complex phenomena involving a large number of interrelated components. Examples exist within all areas of natural and social sciences, such as traffic flow on highways, pedestrians or constituents of a cell, opinion dynamics, spread of epidemics or fires, reaction diffusion systems, crystal surface growth, chemotaxis, financial markets...
