Random Tilings: Pathways to Arctic Phenomena

Phillippe DiFrancesco   [email] (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: The problem of tiling some finite domain of the plane with finitely many types of tiles can often be rephrased as that of enumeration of configurations of non-intersecting lattice paths with fixed ends. For large scaled domains, random tilings may exhibit a sharp separation between "frozen" regions tiled regularly i.e. exhibiting a crystalline structure, and "liquid" regions with disordered tiling. This is the so-called arctic phenomenon. After reviewing techniques for enumerating paths, we present a new method for deriving arctic curves based on the path interpretation of large random tilings.
