Discrete Geometry, Stochastic Loewner Evolution and Inverse Galois Theory
Series: Mathematical Physics and Probability Seminar
Location: zoom
Presenter: Nick Ercolani, University of Arizona

This talk will first present a brief review of the recent result of Holden and Sun concerning a scaling limit of discrete (random) conformal surface maps in terms of critical site percolation on uniform triangulations. We will then describe the potential relevance of this set-up for studying the action of the universal Galois group on branched representations of Riemann surfaces that we are currently exploring.
