#### Math Phys Seminar: Sourav Chatterjee (Courant Inst. NYU) "The universal relation between exponents in first-passage percolation"

It has been conjectured in numerous physics papers that in ordinary first-passage percolation on integer lattices, the fluctuation exponent \chi and the wandering exponent \xi are related through the universal relation \chi=2\xi -1, irrespective of the dimension. This is sometimes called the KPZ relation between the two exponents. I will give a rigorous proof of this conjecture assuming that the exponents exist in a certain sense.
