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.

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.

An introduction to probability theory covering laws of large numbers, central limit theorems, random walks, martingales, Markov chains, ergodic theorems, and Brownian motion. It concentrates on the results that are the most useful for applications.
