The height fluctuation statistics of Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) growth in 1+1 dimensions are sensitive to the initial state. Here we focus on height fluctuations in the stationary regime described by the Baik-Rains distribution. We find that the averages over the initial states exhibit universal and scale-invariant patterns when conditioning on fluctuations. Going into more detail, the conditioned probability distribution of an initial state order parameter shows a transition from uni- to bimodal…
