We show that Zhang's sandpile model (N , [a, b]) on N sites and with uniform additions on [a, b] has a unique stationary measure for all 0 ≤ a < b ≤ 1. This generalizes earlier results of  where this was shown in some special cases. We define the infinite volume Zhang's sandpile model in dimension d ≥ 1, in which topplings occur according to a Markov toppling process, and we study the stabilizability of initial configurations chosen according to some measure µ. We show that for a stationarydoi:10.1214/ejp.v14-640 fatcat:jvug7bzxjfaupkcy565jtjb7cy
