Since its introduction, the totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) has been widely used to model transport phenomena in non-equilibrium interacting particle systems. Many mathematicians and physicists have studied this stochastic process under various conditions motivated by a broad range of applications. In biology, for example, the TASEP has been used to describe the dynamics of...
