Upper tail large deviations in Brownian directed percolation. (English) Zbl 07088986
Summary: This paper presents a new, short proof of the computation of the upper tail large deviation rate function for the Brownian directed percolation model. Through a distributional equivalence between the last passage time in this model and the largest eigenvalue in a random matrix drawn from the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble, this provides a new proof of a previously known result. The method leads to associated results for the stationary Brownian directed percolation model which have not been observed before.
