Propagation of chaos and Poincaré inequalities for a system of particles interacting through their cdf
In this paper, in the particular case of a concave flux function, we are interested in the long time behavior of the nonlinear process associated in [Methodol. Comput. Appl. Probab. 2 (2000) 69–91] to the one-dimensional viscous scalar conservation law. We also consider the particle system obtained by replacing the cumulative distribution function in the drift coefficient of this nonlinear process by the empirical cumulative distribution function. We first obtain a trajectorial propagation of chaos estimate which strengthens the weak convergence result obtained in  without any convexity assumption on the flux function. Then Poincaré inequalities are used to get explicit estimates concerning the long time behavior of both the nonlinear process and the particle system.
