Abstract

We show how the derivation of the Derrida-Lebowitz-Speer-Spohn equation can be prolonged to obtain a new equation, generalizing the models obtained in the paper by these authors. We then investigate its properties from both an analytical and numerical perspective. Specifically, a numerical method is presented to approximate solutions of the prolonged equation. Using this method, we investigate the relationship between the solutions of the prolonged equation and the Tracy-Widom GOE distribution.
