# Nonequilibrium dynamics of driven line liquids.

We study the nonequilibrium dynamics of line liquids as in the nonlinear motion of flux lines of a superconductor driven by an applied electric current. Our analysis suggests a transition in the dynamics of the lines from a smooth, laminar phase at small driving forces, to a rough, turbulent phase when the drive is increased. We explore the nature of these phases and describe interesting analogies to driven diffusion and growing interfaces

We study the equilibrium statics and nonequilibrium driven dynamics of flux line liquids in presence of a random pinning potential. Under the assumption of replica symmetry, we find in the static…

Depinning is a non-equilibrium critical phenomenon involving an external force and a pinning potential. When the force is weak the system is stationary, trapped in a metastable state. Beyond a…

We develop a renormalized continuum field theory for a directed polymer interacting with a random medium and a single extended defect. The renormalization group is based on the operator algebra of…

Using renormalized field theory, we examine the dynamics of a growing surface, driven by an obliquely incident particle beam. Its projection on the reference (substrate) plane selects a 'parallel'…

A systematic mapping of the continuum model to its lattice equivalent shows that in the SC limit, anisotropic perturbations destroy all spatial correlations but retain a temporal scaling which shows a remarkable crossover along one of the two spatial directions.
