Nonequilibrium particle systems in inhomogeneous space
I will discuss stochastic interacting particle systems in the KPZ universality class evolving in one-dimensional inhomogeneous space. The inhomogeneity means that the speed of a particle depends on its location. I will focus on integrable examples of such systems, i.e., for which certain observables can be written in an exact form suitable for asymptotic analysis. Examples include a continuous-space version of TASEP (totally asymmetric simple exclusion process), and the pushTASEP (=long-range TASEP). For integrable systems, limiting density can be described in an explicit way. We obtain asymptotics of fluctuations, in particular, around slow bonds and infinite traffic lights.

No percolation at criticality for groups with fast heat kernel decay
I will prove that there is no percolation at criticality on groups satisfying a heat kernel bound of the form p_n(v,v) < e^(-c n^gamma) for gamma > 1/2. This condition is known to hold for certain groups of intermediate growth. Joint work with Tom Hutchcroft.
