Sample-dependent phase transitions in disordered exclusion models
Laboratoire de Physique Statistique, Ecole Normale Supérieure 24 rue Lhomond, 75231 Paris Cedex 05, France
Accepted: 3 February 2004
We give numerical evidence that the location of the first-order phase transition between the low- and the high-density phases of the one-dimensional asymmetric simple exclusion process with open boundaries becomes sample dependent when quenched disorder is introduced for the hopping rates.
