In this project we plan to study an asymptotic behaviour and stationary distributions of Markov chains describing a system of locally interacting non-negative spins. This class of Markov chains is closely related to interacting particle systems and Gibbs modelswith non-negative spins. Invariant distributions of Markov chains form a special class of Gibbs measures on graphs and are of interest on their own. (AU)
