Abstract: We investigate the static and dynamic properties of a celebrated model ofsocial segregation, providing a complete explanation of the mechanisms leadingto segregation both in one- and two-dimensional systems. Standard statisticalphysics methods shed light on the rich phenomenology of this simple model,exhibiting static phase transitions typical of kinetic constrained models,nontrivial coarsening like in driven-particle systems and percolation-relatedphenomena.
