Research interests

My main interest is in the area of statistical mechanics, stochastic processes and field theory.

Current reserach activities

Today we are working on the problems of statistical theory of the strong coupling limit of the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ)equation, the disordered Ising models, Phase transition in 2d self-gravitation system, and Intermitteny issue in surface growth and self-gravitating system. We have proved recently that in the strong coupling limit the d+1 dimensional KPZ equation develops singularities in the finite-time and determine the critical time scale in terms of characteristics of forcing term. More recently we are investigating the stochastic nature of CMB, heart-Beats and seismic activity.
