I thought that particle systems was a generic name for a variety of models. I will check because if that is true this article should have a more specific name. (Luis 10:56, 2 February 2012 (CST))

I thought so too, until I started reading Liggett's book "Interacting particle systems", I haven't found a formal definition yet (maybe its the same as in definition as for free boundary problems....) but all of them seem to be Markov processes where the state space is a field (the most famous example is the stochastic Ising model). I will dwell on those things in this article (Nestor 21:39, 2 February 2012 (CST))

Indeed, I think particle systems is a little bit too wide: it may include stochastic particle systems or also the particle systems from kinetic theory. It seems that in the literature the name interacting particle system is only used for stochastic systems à la Liggett (see also Scaling Limits of Interacting Particle Systems by Kipnis-Landim)--Milton 11:58, 9 February 2012 (CST).

What could be a more specific title for this article? Luis 16:01, 10 February 2012 (CST)

I think that "Interacting Particle Systems" would be a more accurate name. --Milton 07:24, 13 February 2012 (CST)
