Thedimermodelisoneofthesimplestbutalsomostintriguingmodelsofstatis- tical mechanics. It is typically studied through its height function, which turns the dimer model into a model of random surfaces. The main question is its large scale behaviour. A remarkable conjecture of Kenyon and Okunkov predicts that the large scale behaviour is in great generality described by the Gaussian free field. This conjecture was proved by Kenyon in the case of Temperleyan boundary conditions. We generalized this result to the piecewise Temperleyan and simply connected domains. Our method is based on considering the span- ning tree associated to this model via Temperley s bijection. As a byproduct, we showed that the hypergeometric SLEs (hSLEs) reduces to a more standard SLEs(p) conditional on the hitting point. This talk is based on a joint work with Nathanaël Berestycki.

      Generalized Paley Graphs, Finite Field Hypergeometric Functions and Modular Forms

      AbstractIn 1955, Greenwood and Gleason proved that the two-color diagonal Ramsey number R(4,4) equals 18. Key to their proof was constructing a self-complementary graph of order 17 which does not contain a complete subgraph of order four. This graph is one in the family of graphs now known as Paley graphs. In the 1980s, Evans, Pulham and Sheehan provided a simple closed formula for the number o...

      Elliptic van Diejen difference operators and elliptic hypergeometric integrals of Selberg type

      AbstractIn this talk, I propose a class of eigenfunctions for the elliptic van Diejen operators (Ruijsenaars operators of type BC) which are represented by elliptic hypergeometric integrals of Selberg type. They are constructed from simple seed eigenfunctions by integral transformations, thanks to gauge symmetries and kernel function identities of the van Diejen operators. Based on a collaborat...
