The 40th Midwest Probability Colloquium

Title: Limit Shapes for Height Models, Part I
Speaker: Rick Kenyon
Speaker Info: Brown University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Abstract: We discuss the notion of "limit shape", compute a few examples including random partitions, random lozenge tilings, and the 5-vertex model. In 2+1 dimensions we describe a nice formula for limit shapes from gradient measures (of which the above are examples), which shows a certain linearity in the underlying limit shape theory.
