Scope
The conference centers on random structures in the context of complex
analysis, inspired by interactions between mathematics and physics. The
central example is perhaps the Stochastic Loewner Evolution, introduced by
Oded Schramm. SLE arises as the scaling limit of interfaces in 2D lattice
models at criticality (percolation, Ising model, self avoiding polymers),
and its elegant combination of probability and complex analysis has led to
the proofs of many conjectures originating in physics. Other topics
include Diffusion Limited Aggregation (a model for electrodeposition and
other phenomena), HeleShaw flow (describing interfaces between fluids of
different viscosities, e.g. oil and water), 2D Quantum Gravity and Random
Maps.
