The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang Equation and Universality Class

  title={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 regularity) and expanding the breadth of its universality class. Over the past twenty five years a new universality class has emerged to describe a host of important physical and probabilistic models (including one dimensional interface growth processes, interacting particle systems and polymers in random…

Time evolution of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation
The use of the non-linear SPDEs are inevitable in both physics and applied mathematics since many of the physical phenomena in nature can be effectively modeled in random and non-linear way. The
Anomalous ballistic scaling in the tensionless or inviscid Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation
The one-dimensional Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation is becoming an overarching paradigm for the scaling of nonequilibrium, spatially extended, classical and quantum systems with strong
Cutoff for the Glauber dynamics of the lattice free field
The Gaussian Free Field (GFF) is a canonical random surface in probability theory generalizing Brownian motion to higher dimensions, and is expected to be the universal scaling limit of a host of
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
Hydrodynamic limit and viscosity solutions for a 2D growth process in the anisotropic KPZ class
We study a $(2+1)$-dimensional stochastic interface growth model, that is believed to belong to the so-called Anisotropic KPZ (AKPZ) universality class [Borodin and Ferrari, 2014]. It can be seen
The KPZ Equation, Non-Stationary Solutions, and Weak Universality for Finite-Range Interactions
We study the weak KPZ universality problem by extending the KPZ universality results for weakly asymmetric exclusion processes to non-simple variants under deterministic initial data with constant
Evidence for Geometry-Dependent Universal Fluctuations of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang Interfaces in Liquid-Crystal Turbulence
We provide a comprehensive report on scale-invariant fluctuations of growing interfaces in liquid-crystal turbulence, for which we recently found evidence that they belong to the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang
KPZ and Airy limits of Hall-Littlewood random plane partitions
In this paper we consider a probability distribution on plane partitions, which arises as a one-parameter generalization of the q^{volume} measure. This generalization is closely related to the
The endpoint distribution of directed polymers
Probabilistic models of directed polymers in random environment have received considerable attention in recent years. Much of this attention has focused on integrable models. In this paper, we
Intermittency of the Malliavin Derivatives and Regularity of the Densities for a Stochastic Heat Equation
Author(s): Mahboubi, Pejman | Advisor(s): Liggett, Thomas | Abstract: In recent decades, as a result of mathematicians' endeavor to come up with more realistic models for complex phenomena, the


Growing interfaces uncover universal fluctuations behind scale invariance
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.
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,
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
Universality of slow decorrelation in KPZ growth
There has been much success in describing the limiting spatial fluctuations of growth models in the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) universality class. A proper rescaling of time should introduce a

These notes are based on lectures delivered by the authors at a Langeoog seminar of SFB/TR12 Symmetries and Universality in Mesoscopic Systems to a mixed audience of mathematicians and theoretical
Scaling Limits of Wick Ordered KPZ Equation
Abstract:Consider the KPZ equation , x∈ℝd, where W(t,x) is a space-time white noise. This paper investigates the question of whether, for some exponents χ and z, k{−χ}u(kzt, kx) converges in some
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
Large-distance and long-time properties of a randomly stirred fluid
Dynamic renormalization-group methods are used to study the large-distance, long-time behavior of velocity correlations generated by the Navier-Stokes equations for a randomly stirred, incompressible
AL¨ AINEN Abstract. We consider the stochastic heat equation @tZ = @ 2 x Z − Z u W on the real line, where u W is space-time white noise. h(t, x) = −log Z(t, x) is interpreted as a solution of the
Limit Processes for TASEP with Shocks and Rarefaction Fans
We consider the totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) with two-sided Bernoulli initial condition, i.e., with left density ρ− and right density ρ+. We study the associated height
