Probability in 2D

Fall 2016, Monday 16-19
Holzblat 007

Course outline

We will study some of the very recent progress in probability on two dimensional lattices: We will develop all the necessary tools such as various correlation inequalities, sharp threshold theorem and noise-sensitivity of boolean functions (for positively associated measures), Russo-Seymour-Welsh techniques. We will assume first year undergraduate knowledge in probability and analysis.

The course is partially based on the following papers: The following books could also partially help:
