Hydrodynamic Limit of Boundary Driven Exclusion Processes with Nonreversible Boundary Dynamics

  • C. ErignouxEmail author


Using duality techniques, we derive the hydrodynamic limit for one-dimensional, boundary-driven, symmetric exclusion processes with different types of non-reversible dynamics at the boundary, for which the classical entropy method fails.
