    • Title: The Multiple Loewner Equation with Rapidly and Randomly Oscillating Functions
    • Time: Friday, January 12, 2018, from 5:00pm to 5:10pm
    • Abstract: Kager, Nienhuis, and Kadanoff conjectured that the hull generated from the Loewner equation driven by two constant functions with constant weights could be generated by a single rapidly and randomly oscillating function. We will discuss the proof of their conjecture and a generalization to multiple continuous driving functions with varying weights. Lastly, we investigate a simulation method which comes from the proof for hulls generated by the multiple Loewner equation.
