The overlap of a (d+1)-dimensional directed polymer of length t in a random medium is studied using a renormalization group approach. In d\ensuremath{\gtrsim}2 it vanishes at ${\mathit{T}}_{\mathit{c}}$ for t\ensuremath{\rightarrow}\ensuremath{\infty} as ${\mathit{t}}^{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Sigma}}}$ where \ensuremath{\Sigma}=[(d-1)/(3-2d)](d/z) and z is the transverse spatial rescaling exponent. The same formula holds in d=1 for any finite temperature and it agrees with previous numerical… Expand

TLDR

This work shows that pair interactions in the replicated Hamiltonian determine the nature of directed line localization transitions with consequences for the critical behavior of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation.Expand

This article reviews recent developments in statistical field theory far from equilibrium. It focuses on the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation of stochastic surface growth and its mathematical relatives,… Expand

The aging effect on the dynamics of unbinding of a double stranded directed polymer in a random medium is studied by using the Monte Carlo dynamics of a lattice model in two dimensions and the overlap of the two strands is formulated.Expand

Joint ground states of two directed polymers in a random medium are investigated. Using exact min-cost flow optimization, the true two-line ground-state is compared with the single line ground state… Expand

A comparison method ('differential force microscope') to detect mutations in DNA from force measurements is proposed and two lattice models are treated as specific examples.Expand
