The interchange process with reversals on the complete graph
Journal article, 2019

© 2019, Institute of Mathematical Statistics. All rights reserved. We consider an extension of the interchange process on the complete graph, in which a fraction of the transpositions are replaced by ‘reversals’. The model is motivated by statistical physics, where it plays a role in stochastic representations of xxz-models. We prove convergence to PD(1) of the rescaled cycle sizes, above the critical point 2 for the appearance of macroscopic cycles. This extends a result of Schramm on convergence to PD(1) for the usual interchange process.
