**4th year projects 2019/20** (more information via email to Stefan Adams):

(1.) Large deviations for random walks or Brownian motions (deviation from the law of large numbers & connection with entropy): several projects linked to MA4L3; MA3K0; MA4F7 ;MA4F7; MA4A7; MA4L2; MA482

(2.) Large deviations for random integer sequences and their minimisers - an application from MA4L3.

(3.) Large deviations for random partitions and the scaled shape limits of Young tableaux - an application from MA4L3.

(4.) Percolation models (Delaunay graphs, Voronoi graphs, triangle lattice; Euclidean plane) and their critical regime.

(5.) Neural networks and machine learning

**MSc projects** (list of examples - more via discussion with Stefan Adams):

(1.) Large deviations for integrated random walks (with different applications)

(2.) Scalings limits for cycle distributions (non-standard CLTs)

(3.) Percolation for interacting Voronoi fields in the Euclidean plane

(4.) Gaussian free field (discrete) and its scaling to the continuous version

**Ph.D. projects** (list of examples of possible directions/questions):

(I) Renormalisation group theory via infinite-dimensional Laplace integral methods

(II) Large deviations for multi-dimensional random walks under pinning constraints and their percolation behaviour

(III) Gaussian Free Field (real and complex) and Bosonic loop measures
