Junior Colloquium

Speaker: Joan Lind (UT Knoxville)

Title: Random Walks

Abstract:  Suppose you decide to go for a walk, and each time you reach a corner, you randomly choose the direction to take for the next block. Your path will be an example of a simple random walk.  In this talk, we will take a look at this and other random walks, and we will discuss Schramm-Loewner Evolution, a ground-breaking random process which is related to these random walks.  There will be plenty of
pictures and simulations along the way.
