This book provides an introduction to nonequilibrium statistical physics via lattice models. Beginning with an introduction to the basic driven lattice gas, the early chapters discuss the relevance of this lattice model to certain natural phenomena, examining simulation results in detail. Later chapters discuss absorbing-state transitions, and examine a variety of systems subject to dynamic disorder. The book discusses the effects of multiparticle rules, nonunique absorbing-states and conservation laws, as well as the use of methods such as mean-field theory, Monte Carlo simulation and the concept of universality. It also includes detailed references and examples using simple respresentations of nature to describe real systems.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"...there exists no comparable overview, and the compilation and definition of the most relevant model systems already renders this 300-page volume a very useful text for both students and researchers." Mathematical ReviewsSee more reviews
"The material is skillfully arranged so as to emphasize those aspects of universality which are now well established, while the richness of the problem and the obstacles remaining on our way to a more global understanding of kinetics phase transitions are carefully indicated...sure to become a standard reference guide for the field..." Journal of Statistical Physics
