Abstract
Zerorange processes with decreasing jump rates exhibit a condensation transition, where a positive
fraction of all particles condenses on a single lattice site when the total density exceeds a critical
value. We study the onset of condensation, i.e. the behaviour of the maximum occupation number
after adding or subtracting a subextensive excess mass of particles at the critical density. We establish
a law of large numbers for the excess mass fraction in the maximum, which turns out to jump
from zero to a positive value at a critical scale. Our results also include distributional limits for the
fluctuations of the maximum, which change from standard extreme value statistics to Gaussian when
the density crosses the critical point. Fluctuations in the bulk are also covered, showing that the mass
outside the maximum is distributed homogeneously. In summary, we identify the detailed behaviour
at the critical scale including subleading terms, which provides a full understanding of the crossover
from sub to supercritical behaviour.
