In this talk, I will explain how the gradient flow structure of reversible Markov chains (that was discovered by Maas and Mielke independently in 2011) and the Sandier-Serfaty approach to convergence of gradient flows can be combined to study scaling limits for interacting particle systems on lattices. The exposition will be focused on the case of the simple exclusion process on the discrete torus. Joint work with Marielle Simon (INRIA Lille).
