A classical problem in the field of interacting particle systems (IPS) is to derive the macroscopic laws of the thermodynamical quantities of a physical system by considering an underlying microscopic dynamics which is composed of particles that move according to some prescribed stochastic, or deterministic, law. The macroscopic laws can be partial differential equations (PDE) or stochastic PDE (S ...
