We study the asymmetric six-vertex model in the quadrant with parameters on the stochastic line. We show that the random height function of the model converges to an explicit deterministic limit shape as the mesh size tends to 0. We further prove that the one-point fluctuations around the limit shape are asymptotically governed by the GUE Tracy-Widom distribution. We also explain an equivalent formulation of our model as an interacting particle system, which can be viewed as a discrete time…

In this paper we consider the stochastic six-vertex model on a cylinder with arbitrary initial data. First, we show that it exhibits a limit shape in the thermodynamic limit, whose density profile is

Limit Shapes of the Stochastic Six Vertex Model

It is shown that limit shapes for the stochastic 6-vertex model on a cylinder with the uniform boundary state on one end are solutions to the Burger type equation. Solutions to these equations are

Stochastic PDE Limit of the Six Vertex Model

We study the stochastic six vertex model and prove that under weak asymmetry scaling (i.e., when the parameter $$\Delta \rightarrow 1^+$$ Δ → 1 + so as to zoom into the ferroelectric/disordered phase

Stochastic Higher Spin Vertex Models on the Line

We introduce a four-parameter family of interacting particle systems on the line, which can be diagonalized explicitly via a complete set of Bethe ansatz eigenfunctions, and which enjoy certain

We study numerically the two-point correlation functions of height functions in the six-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions. The correlation functions and the height functions are

Two-point convergence of the stochastic six-vertex model to the Airy process

In this paper we consider the stochastic six-vertex model in the quadrant started with step initial data. After a long time $T$, it is known that the one-point height function fluctuations are of

Color-position symmetry in interacting particle systems

We prove a color-position symmetry for a class of ASEP-like interacting particle systems with discrete time on the one-dimensional lattice. The full space-time inhomogeneity of our systems allows to

Stochastic symplectic ice

In this paper, we construct solvable ice models (six-vertex models) with stochastic weights and U-turn right boundary, which we term “stochastic symplectic ice”. The models consist of alternating



Large time asymptotics of growth models on space-like paths I: PushASEP

We consider a new interacting particle system on the one-dimensional lattice that interpolates between TASEP and Toom's model: A particle cannot jump to the right if the neighboring site is occupied,

The 6-vertex model with fixed boundary conditions

We study the 6-vertex model with fixed boundary conditions. In the thermodynamical limit there is a formation of the limit shape. We collect most of the known results about the analytical properties

Height Fluctuations in the Honeycomb Dimer Model

We study a model of random surfaces arising in the dimer model on the honeycomb lattice. For a fixed “wire frame” boundary condition, as the lattice spacing ϵ → 0, Cohn, Kenyon and Propp [3] showed

The asymmetric six-vertex model

The exact solution of the asymmetric six-vertex model, published nearly without derivation by Sutherlandet al. in 1967, is rederived in detail. The transfer matrix method and the Bethe Ansatz

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.

Domino tilings and the six-vertex model at its free-fermion point

At the free-fermion point, the six-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions (DWBC) can be related to the Aztec diamond, a domino tiling problem. We study the mapping on the level of complete
