The solution to the one dimensional Fisher-KPP equation (1937) starting from a step initial condition, converges after centering by to a traveling wave. The logarithmic correction term, and in particular the coefficient , was computed by Bramson (1978), through a connection with the maximum of branching Brownian motion.
