Abstract

We investigate the hydrodynamic limit for weakly asymmetric simple exclusion processes in crystal lattices. The crystal lattice is a generalisation of the square lattice, the triangular lattice and the hexagonal lattice. As we shall observe, the quasi-linear parabolic equation in the limit is defined on a flat torus and depends on the local structure of the crystal lattice. The scaling limit is constructed by using a discrete harmonic map. We formulate the local ergodic theorem on the crystal lattice by introducing the notion of local function bundle, which is a family of local functions on the configuration space. The ideas and methods are taken from the discrete geometric analysis to these problems. Results we obtain are extensions of ones by Kipnis, Olla and Varadhan to crystal lattice cases.
