Herbert Spohn in Paris

Herbert Spohn is spending six months in Paris from January 2015 to June 2015 as a laureate of the FSMP's Research Chair. Here is the scientific program of his stay.

Integrable stochastic models in the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality class


Herbet Spohn
 (laureate of the 2014 Research Chair from the Technische Universität München) gave 10 weeks of lectures entitled: "Integrable stochastic models in the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality class".

The course covered:

- Determinantal processes and the statistical mechanics of line ensembles,
- Growth models and directed polymers in a random medium,
- The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang stochastic PDE, sharp wedge initial conditions,
- Duality for interacting Brownian motions and other models in the KPZ class,
- Multi-component KPZ equations.



Lectures took place at the Collège de France (annex: 5, rue d'Ulm - 75005 PARIS) from 2pm to 4 pm:
