Abstract
Description
In this paper, we show how a fixed point based boundary layer analysis can be used to understand phases and phase transitions in asymmetric simple exclusion processes (ASEPs) with open boundaries. In order to illustrate this method, we choose a two-species ASEP which has interesting phase transitions not seen in the one-species case. We also apply this method to the single species problem where the analysis is simple but nevertheless quite insightful.
