Random planar graphs and their circle packing

The study of random walks on random planar graphs is a topic lying at the intersection of probability, combinatorics and complex analysis. It is central in contemporary 2D statistical physics due to deep conjectured connections to conformal field theory. In this talk I will review the area, explain the relations to circle packing theory and discuss several recent results.

No specialised knowledge will be assumed.
