Stochastic Growth Theory

We are continuing to explore and extend the fundamentals and applications of stochastic growth theory, and to unify it with other theories of stochastic dynamics. This involves re-examining and generalizing the basis of the theory, relaxing the underlying assumptions, and deriving new predictions. The results are being verified against spacecraft and other data, and against results from particle-in-cell and quasilinear simulations. In an effort to strip the theory down to its most fundamental form, new simplified models are being developed that retain the key characteristics of SGT, but in a form that can be probed more deeply.
