# Thermodynamic Limit for Directed Polymers and Stationary Solutions of the Burgers Equation

@article{Bakhtin2018ThermodynamicLF, title={Thermodynamic Limit for Directed Polymers and Stationary Solutions of the Burgers Equation}, author={Yuri Bakhtin and Liying Li}, journal={Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics}, year={2018}, volume={72} }

The first goal of this paper is to prove multiple asymptotic results for a time‐discrete and space‐continuous polymer model of a random walk in a random potential. These results include: existence of deterministic free energy density in the infinite‐volume limit for every fixed asymptotic slope, concentration inequalities for free energy implying a bound on its fluctuation exponent, and straightness estimates implying a bound on the transversal fluctuation exponent. The culmination of this…
