RANDOM CRACKS IN SPACE

Abstract:  We will describe in non-technical terms some old and new
ideas about what basic natural random objects and fields one can define
in a given space with some geometric structure, and what one can do with
them. This will probably include various joint recent and ongoing work
with Jason Miller, Scott Sheffield, Qian Wei and Titus Lupu.

Te': ore 16.00, Sala Rappresentanza

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Wendelin Werner is a world renowned scientist, whose
exciting work intertwines probability theory with mathematical physics
and complex analysis. Werner is often motivated by problems in
statistical physics which involve critical phenomena in the large scale
behavior of complex multi-particle systems; such as those that arise in
phase transitions and percolation.  His profound work on stochastic
Loewner evolution, the fractal geometry of two dimensional Brownian
motion  and conformal field theory earned Werner both the Fields medal
and the SIAM Pólya Prize (together with collaborators Greg Lawler and
Oded Schramm)  in 2006. In addition, Werner is the recipient of the
European Mathematical Society Prize (2000), the Fermat Prize (2001), the
Jacques Herbrand Prize (2003), the Loève Prize (2005) and was inducted
into the French Academy of Sciences in 2008. Werner received his Ph.D in
1993 from the Universitè Paris VI under the direction of Jean-François
Le Gall and has held positions at the Cambridge University, Universitè
Paris-Sud and Ecole Normale Supèrieure before being named Professor of
Mathematics at ETH Zürich in 2013.
