We consider the one-dimensional Kardar–Parisi–Zhang (KPZ) equation with the half Brownian motion initial condition, studied previously through the weakly asymmetric simple exclusion process. We employ the replica Bethe ansatz and show that the generating function of the exponential moments of the height is expressed as a Fredholm determinant. From this, the height distribution and its asymptotics are studied. Furthermore, using the replica method we also discuss the multi-point height… 
Stationary Correlations for the 1D KPZ Equation
We study exact stationary properties of the one-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation by using the replica approach. The stationary state for the KPZ equation is realized by setting the
Height Fluctuations for the Stationary KPZ Equation
We compute the one-point probability distribution for the stationary KPZ equation (i.e. initial data H(0,X)=B(X)$\mathcal {H}(0,X)=B(X)$, for B(X) a two-sided standard Brownian motion) and show that
Interacting particles on the line and Dunkl intertwining operator of type A: application to the freezing regime
We consider a one-dimensional system of Brownian particles that repel each other through a logarithmic potential. We study two formulations for the system and the relation between them. The first,
Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation in a half space with flat initial condition and the unbinding of a directed polymer from an attractive wall.
We present an exact solution for the height distribution of the KPZ equation at any time t in a half space with flat initial condition. This is equivalent to obtaining the free-energy distribution of

In a recent contribution, Dotsenko establishes a Fredholm determinant formula for the two-point distribution of the Kardar–Parisi–Zhang equation in the long time limit and starting from narrow wedge
Replica analysis of the one-dimensional KPZ equation
In the last few years several exact solutions have been obtained for the onedimensional KPZ equation, which describes the dynamics of growing interfaces. In particular the computations based on
The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation and universality class
Brownian motion is a continuum scaling limit for a wide class of random processes, and there has been great success in developing a theory for its properties (such as distribution functions or
Crossover in the log-gamma polymer from the replica coordinate Bethe Ansatz
The coordinate Bethe Ansatz solution of the log-gamma polymer is extended to boundary conditions with one fixed end and the other attached to one half of a one-dimensional lattice. The large-time
The KPZ equation converges to the KPZ fixed point
We show that under the 1:2:3 scaling, critically probing large space and time, the solution of the KPZ equation starting from a continuous function plus a finite collection of narrow wedges converges
Directed polymer near a hard wall and KPZ equation in the half-space
We study the directed polymer with fixed endpoints near an absorbing wall, in the continuum and in the presence of disorder, equivalent to the KPZ equation on the half-space with droplet initial


Exact solution for the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation with flat initial conditions.
This work provides the first exact calculation of the height distribution at arbitrary time t of the continuum Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) growth equation in one dimension with flat initial conditions and obtain the generating function of the moments of the directed polymer partition sum as a Fredholm Pfaffian.
The stochastic heat equation: Feynman-Kac formula and intermittence
We study, in one space dimension, the heat equation with a random potential that is a white noise in space and time. This equation is a linearized model for the evolution of a scalar field in a

We study the spatial correlations of the one-dimensional KPZ surface for the flat initial condition. It is shown that the multi-point joint distribution for the height is given by a Fredholm
Stochastic Burgers and KPZ Equations from Particle Systems
Abstract: We consider two strictly related models: a solid on solid interface growth model and the weakly asymmetric exclusion process, both on the one dimensional lattice. It has been proven that,
The one-dimensional KPZ equation and the Airy process
Our previous work on the one-dimensional KPZ equation with sharp wedge initial data is extended to the case of the joint height statistics at n spatial points for some common fixed time. Assuming a

From interacting particle systems to random matrices
In this contribution we consider stochastic growth models in the Kardar–Parisi–Zhang universality class in 1 + 1 dimension. We discuss the large time distribution and processes and their dependence
One-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation: an exact solution and its universality.
The solution confirms that the KPZ equation describes the interface motion in the regime of weak driving force, and provides a determinantal formula for the probability distribution function of the height h(x,t) for all t>0.
Renormalization Fixed Point of the KPZ Universality Class
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
Asymptotics in ASEP with Step Initial Condition
In previous work the authors considered the asymmetric simple exclusion process on the integer lattice in the case of step initial condition, particles beginning at the positive integers. There it
