[Host: Genya Kolomeisky]
We discuss significant events in the recent Renaissance triggered by the enigmatic and elusive, but rich stochastic nonlinear PDE of Kardar, Parisi & Zhang,^1 a celebrated equation whose reach far exceeds its grasp, touching such diverse phenomena as non-equilibrium stochastic growth, optimal paths in ill-condensed matter, as well as the extremal statistics of random matrices & increasing subsequences in random permutations.
