"Random Phenomena and Conformal Invariance Within Fractal Gaskets"


We will survey recent and ongoing development dealing with the existence of continuous random models within fractal carpets (of the Sierpinski-carpet type), the (mostly conjectural) role played by conformal invariance within these fractals, and the relation to the Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE).
