Colloquium presented by Balint Virag (University of Toronto)
Consider Z^2, and assign a random length of 1 or 2 to each edge based on independent fair coin tosses. The resulting random geometry, first passage percloation, is conjectured to have a scaling limit.
Most random plane geometric models (including hidden geometries) should have the same scaling limit.
I will explain the basics of the limiting geometry, the "directed landscape", the central object in the class of models named after
Kardar, Parisi and Zhang.
