Fluctuations in the 1D Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation and discrete analogues

Tomohiro SASAMOTO (Chiba University, Japan)


The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation is a non-linear stochastic partial differential equation which describes surface growth phenomena. Recently its one-dimensional version has attracted much attention because of several exciting experimental and theoretical developments [1]. 

In this talk we discuss the replica analysis of the KPZ equation and its discrete analogues. Starting from the basics of the KPZ equation and the replica analysis, we explain how one can utilize it for the analysis of the KPZ equation [2], where are the tricky parts, and how they are regularized in discrete models like q-TASEP [3].
