– We introduce a Markovian model describing the paths that pin an elastic interface moving in a two-dimensional disordered medium. The scaling properties of these “elastic pinning paths” (EPP) are those of a pinned interface belonging to the universality class of the Edwards-Wilkinson equation with quenched disorder. We find that the EPP are different from… CONTINUE READING
