Abstract of "Fluctuations of the competition interface in presence of shocks"

with Peter Nejjar.

We consider last passage percolation (LPP) models with exponentially distributed random variables, which are linked to the totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP). The competition interface for LPP was introduced and studied by Ferrari and Pimentel in [Ann. Probab. 33 (2005), 1235-1254] for cases where the corresponding exclusion process had a rarefaction fan. Here we consider situations with a shock and determine the law of the fluctuations of the competition interface around its deterministic law of large number position. We also study the multipoint distribution of the LPP around the shock, extending our one-point result of [Probab. Theory Relat. Fields 61 (2015), 61-109].
