# Point-to-line polymers and orthogonal Whittaker functions

@article{Bisi2019PointtolinePA, title={Point-to-line polymers and orthogonal Whittaker functions}, author={Elia Bisi and Nikos Zygouras}, journal={Transactions of the American Mathematical Society}, year={2019} }

We study a one-dimensional directed polymer model in an inverse-gamma random environment, known as the log-gamma polymer, in three different geometries: point-to-line, point-to-half-line and when the polymer is restricted to a half-space with end point lying free on the corresponding half-line. Via the use of A. N. Kirillov's geometric Robinson-Schensted-Knuth correspondence, we compute the Laplace transform of the partition functions in the above geometries in terms of orthogonal Whittaker…
