We present the solution of the weak noise theory (WNT) for the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation in one dimension at short time for flat initial condition (IC). The non-linear hydrodynamic equations of the WNT are solved analytically through a connexion to the Zakharov-Shabat (ZS) system using its classical integrability. This approach is based on a recently developed Fredholm determinant framework previously applied to the droplet IC. The flat IC provides the case for a non-vanishing boundary… Expand

An analytical method is presented that allows one to calculate the critical exponents and the correlation and response functions of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) growth equation in all its different regimes, including the strong-coupling one, and derives an approximation scheme that satisfies the linearly realized ones.

Large fluctuations of a Kardar-Parisi-Zhang interface on a half line: The height statistics at a shifted point.
This work considers a stochastic interface h(x,t), described by the 1+1 Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation on the half line x≥0 with the reflecting boundary at x=0, and determines the (Gaussian) body of the distribution and the strongly asymmetric non-Gaussian tails. Expand

Exact short-time height distribution for the flat Kardar-Parisi-Zhang interface.
It is shown that, remarkably, it is the analytic branch of S_{st}(H) which determines the large-deviation function S f (H) of the flat interface via a simple mapping S f(2H) = 2^{-3/2}S st (2H), which is nonphysical beyond a critical value of H. Expand
