Consider the height fluctuations H(x,t) at spatial point x and time t of one-dimensional growth models in the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) class. The spatial point process at a single time is known to converge at large time to the Airy processes (depending on the initial data). The multi-time process however is less well understood. In this talk, I will discuss the result by Johansson on the two-time problem, namely the joint distribution of (H(x,t),H(x,at)) with a>0, in the case of droplet initial data. I also show how to adapt his approach to the flat initial case. This is based on joint work with Kurt Johansson.
