Abstract:  Among 1+1 dimensional directed lattice polymers,  log-gamma distributed weights are a special case that is amenable to various useful exact calculations (an ''exactly solvable'' case).  This talk discusses various aspects of the log-gamma model, in particular an approach to analyzing the model through a geometric or "tropical" version of the Robinson-Schensted-Knuth correspondence.

This talk discusses various aspects of the log-gamma model, in particular an approach to analyzing the model through a geometric or "tropical" version of the Robinson-Schensted-Knuth correspondence.
