Abstract

The dynamical pair approximation was modified to study the stationary states in a two-dimensional repulsive-lattice-gas model driven far from equilibrium by the application of an external field. This approximation distinguishes between the forward, backward, and transverse directions with respect to the electric field. In the present driven system, the forward-backward symmetry is broken at the level of the pair approximation. The difference between the forward and backward directions is confirmed by Monte Carlo simulations.
