Chemical distance for 2d critical percolation
Lily Reeves, Center for Applied Mathematics, Cornell University,

Percolation clusters induce an intrinsic graph distance called the chemical distance. Besides its mathematical appeal, the chemical distance is connected to the study of random walks on critical percolation clusters. In this talk, I will begin with a brief survey on the chemical distance. Then, I will zoom in to the progress and challenges in the 2d critical regime. A portion of this talk is based on joint work with Philippe Sosoe.
