Kinetically constrained models out of equilibrium
9th February 2022, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Kinetically constrained models are interacting particle systems on Z^d, in which particles can appear/disappear only if a given local constraint is satisfied. This condition complexifies significantly the dynamics. In particular, it deprives the system of monotonicity properties, which leaves us with few tools to study the dynamics when it is initially not at equilibrium. I will review the results and techniques we have in this direction.
