See separate announcement) Survival and Extinction of the Contact Process with Rapid Stirring (Roman Berezin) Abstract: We study a nearest neighbour contact process fused with exclusion process in $d\geq 3$. It is known that the critical value of the birth rate of the contact process starting with a single particle, necessary for indefinite survival approaches $1$ as a suitable scaling parameter approaches infinity. The main point of interest is to find sharp asymptotic for how close this critical value is to $1$. -- Dmitry Ioffe Professor, Faculty of IE&M, Technion, Haifa 32000, Israel. phone: 972-4-8294413 fax: 972-4-8295688 e-mail: <ieioffe@ie.technion.ac.il> Probability at the Technion: <http://probability.technion.ac.il/> _______________________________________________ Probseminar mailing list <Probseminar@technion.ac.il> <http://iemm1.technion.ac.il/mailman/listinfo/probseminar> --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math.
