# Jeremy Quastel : The effect of noise on KPP traveling fronts

It was noticed experimentally in the late 90's that the speeds of traveling fronts in microscopic systems approximating the KPP equation converge unusually slowly to their continuum values. Brunet and Derrida made a very precise conjecture for the basic model equation, which is the KPP equation perturbed by white noise. We will explain the conjecture and sketch the main ideas of the proof. This is joint work with Carl Mueller and Leonid Mytnik.
