The full microscopic structure of macroscopic shocks is obtained exactly in the one-dimensional totally asymmetric simple exclusion process from the complete solution of the uniform stationary non-equilibrium state of a system containing two types of particles—«first» and «second» class. The width of the shock as seen from a second-class particle diverges as the inverse square of its strength when the latter goes to zero. In that limit the steady state exhibits long-range correlations and weakly bound states of second-class particles.
