The Weizmann Institute of Science Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Geometric Functional Analysis and Probability Seminar Seminar Room, Room 261, Ziskind Building on Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 11:00 Ori Gurel-Gurevich UBC will speak on Recurrence of planar graph limits Abstract: We will show that any distributional limit of finite planar graphs in which the degree of the root decays exponentially is almost surely recurrent. As a corollary, we obtain that the uniform infinite planar triangulation/quadrangulation (UIPT/UIPQ) are almost surely recurrent, resolving conjectures of Angel, Benjamini and Schramm. Joint work with Asaf Nachmias.Note the unusual day--------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: Gady Kozma <gady.kozma@weizmann.ac.il>
