Title: Reaction-diffusion, exclusion models and Hecke algebras - notes

Abstract: Let us consider a class of interacting particle systems on Z, which have a generator L=\sum_i g_i, where g_iare linear operator, which only act on sites (i,i+1). As it turns out, one can construct a full set of duality functions for such a model, provided g_i's generate Hecke algebra. The models singled out by this condition include ASEP, symmetric annihilating coalescing random walks, branching-coalescing random walks, annihilating random walks with immigration. Will the knowledge of representation theory prove useful in studying these models?
