Lectures on Random Polymers
by F. Caravenna, F. den Hollander, N. Petrelis
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 74
These lecture notes are a guided tour through the fascinating world of polymer chains interacting with themselves and/or with their environment. The focus is on the mathematical description of a number of physical and chemical phenomena, with particular emphasis on phase transitions and space-time scaling.

The purpose of the text is to learn to think probabilistically. The book starts by giving a bird's-eye view of probability, it first examines a number of the great unsolved problems of probability theory to get a feeling for the field.

Recent progress on understanding of the Random Conductance Model is reviewed and commented. A particular emphasis is on the results on the scaling limit of the random walk among random conductances for almost every realization of the environment.

In this work we will look at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example where the mathematics involved is at the college level. The example is the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks.
