Abstract. By means of a novel variational approach and using dual maps techniques
and general ideas of dynamical system theory we derive exact results about
several models of transport flows, for which we also obtain a complete
description of their limit (in time) behavior in the space of configurations.
Using these results we study the motion of a speedy passive particle (tracer)
moving along/against the flow of slow particles and demonstrate that the
latter case might be more efficient.
