Hastings-Levitov aggregation in the small-particle limit

Date

September 12, 2013

Overview

The talk will describe a model of planar aggregation which exhibits the widely-observed phenomenon of the growth of fingers, but which is simple enough that we can establish analytically, in the small-particle limit, both the bulk shape of the cluster and a limit law for the fingers.
