Speaker: Antonio Auffinger

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 813

Date: Friday, September 19, 2008, 3 p.m.

Synopsis:

We introduce First Passage Percolation model and its basic results. Then we focus on the structure of the optimal path, more precisely on the inequalities involving the longitudinal fluctuation exponent and the transversal fluctuation exponent.
