Title: Gradient flows and scaling limits for interacting particle systems

Abstract: In this talk, I will explain how the gradient flow framework for Markov chains on finite spaces that was introduced in 2011 by Maas and Mielke can be combined with the Sandier-Serfaty theorem on convergence of gradient flows to study scaling limits for interacting particle systems on lattices. The talk will be focused on the case of the simple exclusion process. Joint work with Marielle Simon (INRIA Lille).
