The discussion will be devoted to a family of interacting particles on the real line which have a connection with the geometry of Wasserstein space of probability measures. We will consider a physical improvement of a classical Arratia flow, but now particles can split up and they transfer a mass that influences their motion. The particle system can be also interpreted as an infinite dimensional version of sticky reflecting dynamics on a simplicial complex. The model appears as a martingale solution to an infinite dimensional SDE with discontinuous coefficients. In the talk, we are going to consider a reversible case, where the construction is based on a new family of measures on the set of real non-decreasing functions as reference measures for naturally associated Dirichlet forms. In this case, the intrinsic metric leads to a Varadhan formula for the short time asymptotics with the Wasserstein metric for the associated measure valued diffusion. The talk is based on joint work with Max von Renesse.
