"Fractal and multifractal properties of the Schramm-Loewner evolution"

** Abstract: **

The Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE) was invented by Oded
Schramm and is now an invaluable tool in the study of
critical phenomena in two-dimensional statistical physics
models. This talk will have two parts: the first is an
introduction to SLE and the second will discuss some the
fractal properties of the paths. In particular, we will be
considering Holder continuity and dimension of exceptional
points. This talk is intended for a general mathematical
audience.
