Exact formulas in random growth

Colloquium presented by Jeremy Quastel (University of Toronto)

In the past few years a number of exact solutions have been discovered for the distribution of fluctuations in discrete and continuous models in the KPZ (Kardar-Parisi-Zhang) universality class. We will review some of the history of the equations, solutions, and some of the new developments.
