INHOMOGENEOUS RANDOM SYSTEMS
26-27 January 2016
The aim of this annual workshop, in conjunction with the "Journées de Physique Statistique", is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on disordered or random systems, and to discuss recent developments on themes of common interest. Each day is devoted to a specific topic:
Tuesday 26 January: Phase transitions in percolation-type models.
Moderator: Hugo Duminil-Copin (Genève)
Motivated by geometric representations for spin models, mathematicians and
physicists have studied generalizations of Bernoulli percolation (e.g.
random-cluster models, loop models, random currents, etc). The understanding of
these percolation models remained fairly limited for a long time, due to the
lack of independence. Nevertheless, the theory has progressed greatly in the
last few years and the topics discussed during this day are intended to cover
some of these recent advancements.
Invited speakers: Michael Aizenman (Princeton), Dmitry Chelkak (Genève & St.Petersburg), Hugo Duminil-Copin (Genève), Christophe Garban (Lyon), Alessandro Giuliani (Roma), Ioan Manolescu (Fribourg), Vincent Tassion (Genève).
Titles and abstracts
Charged polymers, self-repelling walks, phase boundaries in 2D lattice models,
random walks in random potentials, level lines of 2+1 effective interfaces, edge
or vertex reinforced walks are examples of
polymer-type models of Statistical mechanics which are:
(a) In general not amenable to exact solutions.
(b) Require techniques well beyond sub-additivity based arguments.
The workshop will be devoted to an exposition of several recent (and rather
diverse) ideas and advances along these lines.
Invited speakers: Pietro Caputo (Roma), Frank den Hollander (Leiden), Dmitry Ioffe (Haifa), François Simenhaus (Paris), Bálint Tóth (Bristol & Budapest), Pierre Tarrès (Paris), Atilla Yılmaz (İstanbul).
