@article{Corwin2011RenormalizationFP, title={Renormalization Fixed Point of the KPZ Universality Class}, author={Ivan Corwin and Jeremy Quastel and Daniel Remenik}, journal={Journal of Statistical Physics}, year={2011}, volume={160}, pages={815-834} }

The one dimensional Kardar–Parisi–Zhang universality class is believed to describe many types of evolving interfaces which have the same characteristic scaling exponents. These exponents lead to a natural renormalization/rescaling on the space of such evolving interfaces. We introduce and describe the renormalization fixed point of the Kardar–Parisi–Zhang universality class in terms of a random nonlinear semigroup with stationary independent increments, and via a variational formula…

This work investigates growing interfaces of liquid-crystal turbulence and finds not only universal scaling, but universal distributions of interface positions, which obey the largest-eigenvalue distributions of random matrices and depend on whether the interface is curved or flat, albeit universal in each case.
