I will explain how continuous random polymers - both the O'Connell-Yor polymer and the KPZ equation- give rise to random ( and non-smooth) solutions to the Toda equations. The question I would like to be able to answer but can't : what does the Toda equation tell us about the polymer?

This is based on work with Chin Lun, and earlier work with Neil Oâ€™Connell.
