Martin Evans, Pablo Ferrari, Kirone Mallick. Matrix representation of the stationary measure for the multispecies TASEP. Journal of Statistical Physics, Springer Verlag, 2009, 135 (2), pp.217-239. ⟨10.1007/s10955-009-9696-2⟩. ⟨cea-02924963⟩

In this work we construct the stationary measure of the N species totally asymmetric simple exclusion process in a matrix product formulation. We make the connection between the matrix product formulation and the queueing theory picture of Ferrari and Martin. In particular, in the standard representation, the matrices act on the space of queue lengths. For N > 2 the matrices in fact become tensor products of elements of quadratic algebras. This enables us to give a purely algebraic proof of the stationary measure which we present for N = 3.
