Dominik Schmid (Bonn), 12h TopMath year, will give a talk on "Mixing times for exclusion processes" within the Alumni Speakers Series. The talk will take place on Monday, 16th January 2023 at 4 PM in Garching, MI 00.10.011. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.

As part of the TopMath Alumni Speakers Series, TopMath regularly invites graduates of its program to share their experiences with students and doctoral candidates. They present their current projects in research or industry, speak about their career path and are then available for an informal exchange.

For the first Alumnus Talk of the year 2023, Dr. Dominik Schmid could be won. Dominik Schmid, TopMath class 2015/16, is curently working as a PostDoc at the University of Bonn funded by the DAAD-PRIME-program. From October 2021 to September 2022, he was postdoctorial visiting research fellow at Princeton University.

Dominik Schmid: Mixing times for exclusion processes

The goal of this talk is to provide an overview on recent mixing time results for symmetric and (totally) asymmetric simple exclusion processes with open boundaries. We focus on whether the cutoff phenomenon, an abrupt convergence to the stationary measure, occurs.

This talk is based on joint work with Dor Elboim, Nina Gantert, Evita Nestoridi, and Allan Sly.
