Abstract

Random growth arises in physical and industrial settings, from cancer to polymer creation. Despite considerable effort, mathematicians and physicists have been unable to answer fundamental questions such as "What do typical clusters look like?". This article explores how combining probability and complex analysis can provide mathematical descriptions of random growth.
