Large scale behaviour of the continuum random polymer and KPZ

Colloquium presented by Jeremy Quastel (University of Toronto)

About 30 years ago it was observed that a large class of one dimensional random systems have highly anomalous fluctuations. We will describe some of these models and survey recent progress in proving some of the conjectured scalings and limiting distributions.
