The dynamic phi^4 model is a non-linear stochastic PDE which involves a cubic power of the solution. In dimensions 3 and less, solutions are expected to have the same local regularity as the linearised equation, for which the law of the Gaussian free field is invariant. Hence, in dimensions 2 and 3, some renormalisation needs to be performed in order to define the cubic power of the solution. In the (full) plane, I will explain how to do this and show that the stochastic PDE has a well-defined solution for all times. If time permits, I will also sketch a proof that the model is the scaling limit of a near-critical Ising model with long-range interactions. Joint work with Hendrik Weber.
