I will talk about the ergodic theory of randomly forced Burgers equation (a basic nonlinear evolution PDE related to fluid dynamics and growth models) in the noncompact setting. The basic objects are one-sided infinite minimizers of random action (in the inviscid case) and polymer measures on one-sided infinite trajectories (in the positive viscosity case).

Joint work with Eric Cator, Kostya Khanin, Liying Li.
