Absorbing state models are far-from-equilibrium many-body systems which exhibit a phase transition with characteristics similar to those of a continuous equilibrium transition.  One major difference, however, which we have recently discovered, is that as the critical point is approached, spatial particle fluctuations decrease, resulting in a hyperuniform distribution with long-range correlations.  The effects of noise on these results will be discussed as well.
