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. 
KP governs random growth off a 1-dimensional substrate
Abstract The logarithmic derivative of the marginal distributions of randomly fluctuating interfaces in one dimension on a large scale evolve according to the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP) equation.
We study last passage percolation in a half-quadrant, which we analyze within the framework of Pfaffian Schur processes. For the model with exponential weights, we prove that the fluctuations of the
From Painlevé to Zakharov–Shabat and beyond: Fredholm determinants and integro-differential hierarchies
As Fredholm determinants are more and more frequent in the context of stochastic integrability, we unveil the existence of a common framework in many integrable systems where they appear. This
Pfaffian Schur processes and last passage percolation in a half-quadrant
We study last passage percolation in a half-quadrant, which we analyze within the framework of Pfaffian Schur processes. For the model with exponential weights, we prove that the fluctuations of the
The One-Dimensional KPZ Equation and Its Universality Class
Our understanding of the one-dimensional KPZ equation, alias noisy Burgers equation, has advanced substantially over the past 5 years. We provide a non-technical review, where we limit ourselves to
Facilitated exclusion process and Pfaffian Schur processes
We study the Facilitated TASEP, an interacting particle system on the one dimensional integer lattice. We prove that starting from step initial condition, the position of the rightmost particle has
How flat is flat in random interface growth?
Domains of attraction are identified for the universality classes of one-point asymptotic fluctuations for the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation with general initial data. The criterion is based on
The Free Boundary Schur Process and Applications I
We investigate the free boundary Schur process, a variant of the Schur process introduced by Okounkov and Reshetikhin, where we allow the first and the last partitions to be arbitrary (instead of
Transversal Fluctuations of the ASEP, Stochastic Six Vertex Model, and Hall-Littlewood Gibbsian Line Ensembles
We consider the ASEP and the stochastic six vertex model started with step initial data. After a long time, T, it is known that the one-point height function fluctuations for these systems are of
The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation - a statistical physics perspective
The article covers the one-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation, weak drive limit, universality, directed polymers in a random medium, replica solutions, statistical mechanics of line ensembles,


Correlation functions for symmetrized increasing subsequences
We show that the correlation functions associated to symmetrized increasing subsequence problems can be expressed as pfaffians of certain antisymmetric matrix kernels, thus generalizing the result of
Trigonometric Solutions of the Yang-Baxter Equation, Nets, and Hypergeometric Functions
It is now well known that the topology of knots in Euclidean 3-space is closely related to the study of the quantum Yang-Baxter equation R12R23R12=R23R12R23 (O.a) where R is an endomorphism of V ⊗ V
A Fredholm Determinant Representation in ASEP
In previous work (Tracy and Widom in Commun. Math. Phys. 279:815–844, 2008) the authors found integral formulas for probabilities in the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integer
Exact Formulas for Random Growth with Half-Flat Initial Data
We obtain exact formulas for moments and generating functions of the height function of the asymmetric simple exclusion process at one spatial point, starting from special initial data in which every
Fluctuation Properties of the TASEP with Periodic Initial Configuration
Abstract We consider the joint distributions of particle positions for the continuous time totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP). They are expressed as Fredholm determinants with a
Bethe ansatz derivation of the Tracy-Widom distribution for one-dimensional directed polymers
The distribution function of the free-energy fluctuations in one-dimensional directed polymers with δ-correlated random potential is studied by mapping the replicated problem to a many-body quantum
Polynuclear Growth on a Flat Substrate and Edge Scaling of GOE Eigenvalues
We consider the polynuclear growth (PNG) model in 1+1 dimension with flat initial condition and no extra constraints. Through the Robinson-Schensted-Knuth (RSK) construction, one obtains the
On ASEP with Step Bernoulli Initial Condition
This paper extends earlier work on ASEP to the case of step Bernoulli initial condition. The main results are a representation in terms of a Fredholm determinant for the probability distribution of a
The Airy1 Process is not the Limit of the Largest Eigenvalue in GOE Matrix Diffusion
Using a systematic approach to evaluate Fredholm determinants numerically, we provide convincing evidence that the Airy1-process, arising as a limit law in stochastic surface growth, is not the limit
Replica approach to the KPZ equation with the half Brownian motion initial condition
We consider the one-dimensional Kardar–Parisi–Zhang (KPZ) equation with the half Brownian motion initial condition, studied previously through the weakly asymmetric simple exclusion process. We
