Welsh's Conjecture in First-Passage Percolation
Professor Peter Otto
February 7, 2005
Tea and pastries will be served
In this talk I will present a 25 year old problem posed by D.J.A Welsh in the area first-passage percolation. What is interesting about this problem is that while the original conjecture is still not solved, under various ``mild" modifications the conjecture can be proven using a simple geometric argument. Only a basic understanding of probability, which we will review, is necessary for this talk.
