Computability of Harmonic Measure

We will review recent results relating the geometry of a connected domain to the computability of its harmonic measure at a given point x. In particular, we will discuss examples of domains whose harmonic measure at x is always computable relative to x, but not uniformly. As a by-product, this construction produces "natural" examples of harmonic functions arising as solutions to a Dirichlet problem which are piecewise computable (i.e. all their values are computable relative to the input point), but not computable. This is a work in collaboration with I. Binder, A. Glucksam and M. Yampolsky.
