Quasi-nearest particle systems. (English) Zbl 0622.60116
In Bull. Am. Math. Soc. 83, 880-890 (1977; Zbl 0372.60149) F. Spitzer introduced and studied nearest particle systems. These are birth and death processes of single particle configurations in Z with the birth and death rates depending only on the distance to the nearest particle to the left and to the right of each site. T. M. Liggett [Ann. Probab. 11, 16-33 (1983; Zbl 0508.60081)] derived their ergodic behaviour in the attractive case.
In the present paper the authors study a generalization of these processes, which they call quasi nearest particle systems. Here the rates additionally depend on the nearest empty site behind the nearest particle to the left and to the right. They study reversibility and in the attractive case the ergodic behaviour and critical phenomena.
