Abstract

In this abstract, we study tree-like tableaux and some of their probabilistic properties. Tree-like tableaux are in bijection with other combinatorial structures, including permutation tableaux, and have a connection to the partially asymmetric simple exclusion process (PASEP), an important model of interacting particles system. In particular, in the context of tree-like tableaux, a corner corresponds to a node occupied by a particle that could jump to the right while inner corners indicate a particle with an empty node to its left. Thus, the total number of corners represents the number of nodes at which PASEP can move, i.e., the total current activity of the system. As the number of inner corners and regular corners is connected, we limit our discussion to just regular corners and show that, asymptotically, the number of corners in a tableaux of length n is normally distributed. Furthermore, since the number of corners in tree-like tableaux are closely related to the number of corners in permutation tableaux, we will discuss the corners in the context of the latter tableaux.
