Event details

Since the advent of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation, that of random interfaces has grown to be one of the main topics in non equilibrium statistical mechanics. In this talk I will introduce the concepts and ideas behind the formulation of the KPZ equation, then illustrate my PhD research focused on extending such concepts so as to bridge random interfaces theory with that of active matter.
