abstract = {We study a continuous time growth process on the $d$-dimensional hypercubic lattice $\mathcal \{Z\}^d$, which admits a phenomenological interpretation as the combustion reaction $A+B\rightarrow 2A$, where
$A$ represents heat particles and $B$ inert particles. This process can be described as an interacting particle system in the following way: at time 0 a simple symmetric continuous time random walk of total jump rate one begins to move from the origin of the hypercubic lattice; then, as soon as any random walk visits a site previously unvisited by any other random walk, it creates a new
independent simple symmetric random walk starting from that site. Let $P_d$ be the law of such a process and $S^0_d(t)$ the set of sites visited at time $t$. We prove that there exists a bounded, nonempty, convex set $C_d\subset \mathbb \{R\}^d$ such that for every $\epsilon >0$, $P_d$-a.s. eventually in $t$, the set $S^0_d(t)$ is within an $\epsilon t$ distance of the set $[C_dt]$, where for $A\subset \mathbb \{R\}^d$ we define $[A]:=A\cap \mathbb \{Z\}^d$. Furthermore,
answering questions posed by M. Bramson and R. Durrett, we prove that the empirical density of particles converges weakly to a product Poisson measure of parameter one, and moreover, for $d$
large enough, we establish that the set $C_d$ is not a ball under the Euclidean norm.},

$A$ represents heat particles and $B$ inert particles. This process can be described as an interacting particle system in the following way: at time 0 a simple symmetric continuous time random walk of total jump rate one begins to move from the origin of the hypercubic lattice; then, as soon as any random walk visits a site previously unvisited by any other random walk, it creates a new
