Title: Configurational transition in a Fleming-Viot-type model and probabilistic interpretation of Laplacian eigenfunctions
Abstract: We analyse and simulate a two-dimensional Brownian multi-type particle with death and branching (birth) depending on the position of of different types. The system is confined in a box, whose boundaries act as the sink of Brownian The branching rate matches the death rate so that the total of particles is kept constant. In the case of m types of particle a rectangular box of size a x b and elongated shape a much greater b we observe that the stationary distribution of particles to the mth Laplacian eigenfunction. For smaller elongations > b we find a configurational transition to a new limiting The ratio a/b for which the transition occurs is related the value of the mth eigenvalue of the Laplacian with rectangular boundaries.
