Week 3 — Prof. Wendelin Werner

Next week’s talk will be given by Prof. Wendelin Werner on probability theory; details are below. Note that we will be meeting in the CMS rather than the usual Winstanley.

Title: Drawing at random
Speaker: Wendelin Werner
Abstract: How one can try to draw/choose shapes at random in a natural way (or more mathematically, what are natural measures on spaces of self-avoiding curves or loops)?  I will describe a main open question in this area, some results and explain how complex analysis enters the game when dealing with planar curves.
Date: Monday 5 February
Time: 7pm
Location: CMS, MR2

We hope to see you on Monday!
