We derive a form of the KPZ equation, which governs the fluctuations of a class of interface heights, in terms of a martingale problem, as the scaling limit of fluctuation fields with respect to some particle systems such as zero range processes. This is joint work in progress with P. Goncalves and M. Jara.
