Spectral Gap for Multicolor Nearest-Neighbor Exclusion Processes with Site Disorder

  • Azzouz DermouneEmail author
  • Philippe Heinrich


We consider a system of multicolor disordered lattice gas in a hypercube of ℤ d . Using a recent result of Caputo (article in preparation), we give an estimate of the spectral gap for the nearest-neighbor dynamics which plays an important role in the study of hydrodynamic limit.
