Brownian Aspects of the KPZ Fixed Point
Published 2019-12-25Version 1
The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) fixed point is a Markov process that is conjectured to be at the core of the KPZ universality class. In this article we study two aspects the KPZ fixed point that share the same Brownian limiting behaviour: the local space regularity and the long time evolution. Most of the results that we will present here were obtained by either applying explicit formulas for the transition probabilities or applying the coupling method to discrete approximations. Instead we will use the variational description of the KPZ fixed point, allowing us the possibility of running the process starting from different initial data (basic coupling), to prove directly the aforementioned limiting behaviours.
