(12 January - 3 July 2015)
The aim of this workshop is to provide introductory background on random geometry, that could serve participants during their stay for the Programme at Newton Institute. The workshop will consist of several courses, lasting roughly 6-8 hours each, on the following topics: Gaussian Free Field, random planar maps, SLE, Gaussian multiplicative chaos, and discrete complex analysis. The level of the presentations will be mainly at the graduate and early post-doc level, but researchers at all levels of seniority will be welcome.
