The scaling limit of the KPZ equation
Abstract: The KPZ equation was introduced to describe random growing interfaces by Kardar, Parisi, and Zhang in 1986. Since its introduction, the KPZ equation and its large-time asymptotics have been a major research subject in mathematics and physics. The convergence of its fundamental solutions has been a long-standing open problem. In this talk, I will review results in this direction and present my recent work that resolves this problem.

Dr. Wu received her PhD from Columbia University in 2020 and is currently a Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago.
