# Ivan Corwin : Brownian Gibbs line ensembles.

The Airy line ensemble arises in scaling limits of growth models, directed polymers, random matrix theory, tiling problems and non-intersecting line ensembles. This talk will mainly focus on the "non-intersecting Brownian Gibbs property" for this infinite ensemble of lines. Roughly speaking, the measure on lines is invariant under resampling a given curve on an interval according to a Brownian Bridge conditioned to not intersect the above of below labeled curves. This property leads to the proof of a number of previously conjectured results about the top line of this ensemble. We will also briefly touch on the KPZ line ensemble, which arises as the scaling limit of a diffusion defined by the Doob-h transform of the quantum Toda lattice Hamiltonian. The top labeled curve of this KPZ ensemble is the fixed time solution to the famous Kardar-Parisi-Zhang stochastic PDE. This line ensemble has a "softer" Brownian Gibbs property in which resampled Brownian Bridges may cross the lines above and below, but at exponential energetic cost. This is based on joint work with Alan Hammond.
