# A Pfaffian Representation for Flat ASEP

@article{Ortmann2015APR, title={A Pfaffian Representation for Flat ASEP}, author={Janosch Ortmann and Jeremy Quastel and Daniel Remenik}, journal={Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics}, year={2015}, volume={70} }

We obtain a Fredholm Pfaffian formula for an appropriate generating function of the height function of the asymmetric simple exclusion process starting from flat (periodic) initial data. Formal asymptotics lead to the GOE Tracy‐Widom distribution. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
