MATH 371--Winter 2010

Gaussian fields and loop measures

TT 1:50 -- 3:20 , 206 Eckhart

Greg Lawler , 415 Eckhart,

This course will be two parts. In the beginning, I will lecture
on some recent research areas in math, emphasizing "loop measures"
and relations to the Gaussian free field. There will be
no text. The main references will be discussed in class (and
may change as the course develops). The first topic will be
from Chapter 9 of my (with Vlada Limic) upcoming book on
random walk.
The second part of the course will be presentations of research
papers by members of the class. These will be negotiated
later. They do not have to be very closely related to the
work I discuss.

9.
