Leonid Petrov works in integrable probability, an area of mathematical research at the interface between probability / statistical physics on the one hand and representation theory/quantum integrability on the other. He applies tools from integrability (symmetric functions and Yang-Baxter equations for solvable lattice models) to analyze the asymptotic behavior of stochastic models motivated by a wide range of real-world questions, including the structure of ice and other condensed matter, magnetism, quantum spin systems, thermodynamics, traffic models, and directed polymers.
