Title: Gaussian Random Links
Abstract: A model for random links is obtained by fixing an
initial curve in some n-dimensional Euclidean space and
projecting the curve on to random 3 dimensional subspaces. By
varying the curve we obtain different models of random
knots, and we will study how the second moment of the average crossing
number change as a function of the initial curve.
This is based on work of Christopher Westenberger.
