This week's JC is the last one for the semester (Honors Students take
note!) and features one of our newest professors, Dr. Joan Lind. As usual
the talk is at 3:35 in HBB 102, with pizza in Aconda 113. Next semester
the JC will be in the fabulous new colloquium room in Ayres Hall!!!
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, an exciting new random process which is related
to these random walks. There will be plenty of pictures and simulations
along the way.
