SUMMARY:Math Colloquium\: Joe P. Chen (Colgate University)\, The cutoff phenomenon for exclusion processes on graphs with open boundaries
DESCRIPTION:Joe P. Chen (Colgate University)\, The cutoff phenomenon f
or exclusion processes on graphs with open boundaries\nA fundamental q
uestion in the study of Markov chains is the convergence to a stationa
ry distribution. As an example\, how many shuffles does it take to ful
ly mix a standard deck of 52 cards? Answering this "mixing time" quest
ion requires understanding notions of convergence in finite Markov cha
ins\, and the spectral theory of Markov matrices.
