Abstract

We study the evolution of the completely asymmetric simple exclusion process in one dimension, for initial configurations corresponding to average density p_ (p+) left (right) of the origin, p_-< p +. The microscopic shock position is identified by introducing a "second class" particle. Results indicate that the shock profile is stable, and the distribution around the shock position N(t) tends, to a limiting distribution, which is locally close to an equilibrium distribution far from the shock. Moreover the dispersion behaves linearly in time, for not too small values of the density difference.
