MEMBERS SEMINAR
Topic:Random Geometry and SLE II
Speaker:Scott Sheffield
Affiliation:Microsoft Research and Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Wednesday, November 15
Time/Room:2:30pm - 3:30pm/S-101

We introduce and construct the "AC geometry" from the Gaussian free field and use it to prove various facts about Schramm-Loewner evolutions. (See http://math.nyu.edu/faculty/sheff/spokes.html for a graphical description of what an AC geometry is.)
