## The atypical growth in a random interface

##### Abstract:

Random interface growth is all around us: tumors, bacterial colonies, infections, and propagating flame fronts. The KPZ equation is a stochastic PDE central to a class of random growth phenomena. In this talk, I will explain how to combine tools from probability, partial differential equations, and integrable systems to understand the behavior of the KPZ equation when it exhibits unusual growth.
