FWF Project P 35428-N: Random surfaces: growth, fluctuations and universality

Project leader: Fabio Toninelli, opens an external URL in a new window

The central theme of this FWF, opens an external URL in a new window funded project is the understanding of the large-scale behavior of random surfaces. Two major innovative aspects are:

  • the focus on (2+1)-dimensional (as opposed to: (1+1)-dimensional) stochastic growth, which is to date to a large extent unexplored;
  • the search for robust mathematical methods and results that go beyond exactly solvable models

We work on two main interconnected directions:

  • super-diffusivity phenomena for (2+1)-dimensional stochastic growth
  • universality of fluctuations for two-dimensional random surface, beyond the exactly solvable setting
