INHOMOGENEOUS RANDOM SYSTEMS
24-25 January 2017 ScheduleAmphi Hermite
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 24 January: Random Geometry.
Moderator: Bertrand Duplantier (Saclay)
The study of random geometric structures in two dimensions has
recently witnessed important progress in topics such as:
Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE) and multifractal properties; random
planar maps as weighted by statistical-mechanical models;
distance-dependent multiple-point functions on planar maps; Brownian
map as a universal scaling limit; Liouville quantum gravity, its
fundamental relationship to SLE and the Brownian map equivalence. The
lectures given at this meeting will present these advances.
Preliminary list of speakers: Juhan Aru (Zürich), Gaëtan Borot (Bonn), Emmanuel Guitter (Saclay), Fredrik Johansson Viklund (Stockholm), Jean-François Le Gall (Orsay), Jason Miller (Cambridge), Hao Wu (Genève & Beijing)
Titles and abstracts
Extreme value statistics (EVS) concerns the statistics of the maximum (or
minimum) of a set of random variables. This is a relevant problem in diverse
fields in physics, mathematics, statistics, biology and computer
science. EVS is well understood when the variables are uncorrelated or weakly
correlated. In contrast, very few results exist when the variables are strongly
correlated. EVS of strongly correlated variables is important in many contexts,
e.g., the largest eigenvalue of a random matrix, the ground state energy of a
disordered system (such as spin glasses or directed polymers), the maximum of
log-correlated Gaussian processes, the maximum of a branching Brownian motion,
amongst many others.
Recent advances in this subject will be presented by leading experts in the field.
