[15] On the geometry of uniform meandric systems (with Ewain Gwynne and Minjae Park).

A meandric system of size is the set of loops formed from two arc diagrams (non-crossing perfect matchings) on , one drawn above the real line and the other below the real line. A uniform random meandric system can be viewed as a random planar map decorated by a Hamiltonian path (corresponding to the real …

Permutations in Random Geometry

Random geometry and random permutations have been extremely active fields of research for several years. The former is characterized by the study of large planar maps and their continuum limits, i.e. the Brownian map, Liouville quantum gravity surfaces and Schramm–Loewner evolutions. The latter is characterized by the study of large uniform permutations and (more recently) …

[14] Permutons, meanders, and SLE-decorated Liouville quantum gravity (with Ewain Gwynne and Xin Sun).

We study a class of random permutons which can be constructed from a pair of space-filling Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE) curves on a Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) surface. This class includes the skew Brownian permutons introduced by Borga (2021), which describe the scaling limit of various types of random pattern-avoiding permutations. Another interesting permuton in our …

[13] Large deviation principle for random permutations (with Sayan Das, Sumit Mukherjee, Peter Winkler).

We derive a large deviation principle for random permutations induced by probability measures of the unit square, called permutons. These permutations are called μ-random permutations. We also introduce and study a new general class of models of random permutations, called Gibbs permutation models, which combines and generalizes μ-random permutations and the celebrated Mallows model for …

[11] Baxter permuton and Liouville quantum gravity (with Nina Holden, Xin Sun, and Pu Yu). Probab. Theory Related Fields (to appear).

The Baxter permuton is a random probability measure on the unit square which describes the scaling limit of uniform Baxter permutations. We find an explict formula for the expectation of the Baxter permuton, i.e. the density of its intensity measure. This answers a question of Dokos and Pak (2014). We also prove that all pattern …
