Conformally invariant scaling limits in planar critical percolation
This is an introductory account of the emergence of conformal invariance in the scaling limit of planar critical percolation. We give an exposition of Smirnov's theorem (2001) on the conformal
Conformal Measure Ensembles for Percolation and the FK–Ising Model
Under some general assumptions, we construct the scaling limit of open clusters and their associated counting measures in a class of two dimensional percolation models. Our results apply, in
The scaling limits of near-critical and dynamical percolation
We prove that near-critical percolation and dynamical percolation on the triangular lattice $\eta \mathbb{T}$ have a scaling limit as the mesh $\eta \to 0$, in the "quad-crossing" space $\mathcal{H}$
The Full Scaling Limit of Two-Dimensional Critical Percolation
We use SLE(6) paths to construct a process of continuum nonsimple loops in the plane and prove that this process coincides with the full continuum scaling limit of 2D critical site percolation on the
Two-dimensional scaling limits via marked nonsimple loops
Abstract.We postulate the existence of a natural Poissonian marking of the double (touching) points of SLE6 and hence of the related continuum nonsimple loop process that describes macroscopic
Percolation crossing formulae and conformal field theory
Using conformal field theory, we derive several new crossing formulae at the two-dimensional percolation point. High-precision simulation confirms these results. Integrating them gives a unified
Is critical 2D percolation universal
The aim of these notes is to explore possible ways of extending Smirnov’s proof of Cardy’s formula for critical site-percolation on the triangular lattice to other cases (such as bond-percolation on
On Crossing Event Formulas in Critical Two-Dimensional Percolation
Several formulas for crossing functions arising in the continuum limit of critical two-dimensional percolation models are studied. These include Watts's formula for the horizontal-vertical crossing
Critical percolation: the expected number of clusters in a rectangle
We show that for critical site percolation on the triangular lattice two new observables have conformally invariant scaling limits. In particular the expected number of clusters separating two pairs


Values of Brownian intersection exponents, I: Half-plane exponents
Theoretical physics predicts that conformal invariance plays a crucial role in the macroscopic behavior of a wide class of two-dimensional models in statistical physics (see, e.g., [4], [6]). For
Critical Exponents, Conformal Invariance and Planar Brownian Motion
In this review paper, we first discuss some open problems related to two-dimensional self-avoiding paths and critical percolation. We then review some closely related results (joint work with Greg
Holder Regularity and Dimension Bounds for Random Curves
Random systems of curves exhibiting fluctuating features on arbitrarily small scales (δ) are often encountered in critical models. For such systems it is shown that scale-invariant bounds on the
The dimension of the planar Brownian frontier is 4/3
In a series of recent preprints, we have proven that with probability one the Hausdorff dimension on the outer boundary of planar Brownian motion is 4/3, confirming a conjecture by Mandelbrot. It is
Conformal invariance in two-dimensional percolation
The word percolation, borrowed from the Latin, refers to the seeping or oozing of a liquid through a porous medium, usually to be strained. In this and related senses it has been in use since the

1. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the properties of two-dimensional Brownian motions’ and to apply the results thus obtained to the theory of harmonic functions in the Gaussian plane.
Path Crossing Exponents and the External Perimeter in 2D Percolation
2D Percolation path exponents $x^{\cal P}_{\ell}$ describe probabilities for traversals of annuli by $\ell$ non-overlapping paths, each on either occupied or vacant clusters, with at least one of
Critical percolation in finite geometries
The methods of conformal field theory are used to compute the crossing probabilities between segments of the boundary of a compact two-dimensional region at the percolation threshold. These
