 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 $1$.
