“A new Universality Class in (1+1)-dimensions: the Brownian Castle”

Venerdì 5 Giugno 2020, ore 11:00 - Zoom - Giuseppe Cannizzaro (University of Warwick)


In the context of randomly fluctuating interfaces in (1+1)-dimensions two Universality Classes have generally been considered, the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang and the Edwards-Wilkinson. Models within these classes exhibit universal fluctuations under 1:2:3 and 1:2:4 scaling respectively. Starting from a modification of the classical Ballistic Deposition model we will show that this picture is not exhaustive and another Universality Class, whose scaling exponents are 1:1:2, has to be taken into account. We will describe how it arises, briefly discuss its connections to KPZ and introduce a new stochastic process, the Brownian Castle, deeply connected to the Brownian Web, which should capture the large-scale behaviour of models within this Class.

This talk is based on a joint ongoing work with Martin Hairer.
