How to enable SSL for a homepage hosted on S3


As Google Chrome will mark all HTTP websites unsafe later this year, it is time to figure out how to enable SSL on my websites. I currently have 3 websites under active management:

All three of them are hosted through AWS, but the homepage is by far the easiest as it only involves S3 and no EC2 instances. So at first I decided to turn on SSL at the homepage, which I succeeded with.

A histogram of the path energies ‐ the original motivation for the work

Quenched Central Limit Theorem in a Corner Growth Setting


We consider point-to-point directed paths in a random environment on the two-dimensional integer lattice. For a general independent environment under mild assumptions we show that the quenched energy of a typical path satisfies a central limit theorem as the mesh of the lattice goes to zero. Our proofs rely on concentration of measure techniques and some combinatorial bounds on families of paths.

Nonequilibrium particle systems in inhomogeneous space

This talk describes results in progress on particle systems (PushTASEP and continuous space TASEP) in inhomogeneous space. Some earlier results related to the topic of the talk appear in [this paper with Borodin][ref24].

q-Boson sign

A sign in Boston Logan airport commemorating deformed Bosons

This sign works equally well for both $q$-Bosons and $t$-Bosons, so the choice of parameter is up to the tourist.

Installing specific versions of biblatex and texlive for arxiv


(An update on the previous post)

So, I had a problem - my TeX distribution is new and updated, but I need to submit a paper to the arXiv, and arXiv has a different version of TeX distribution (currently 2016). The main problem is biblatex, which creates an incompatible version of the bibliography .bbl file. For this, I need an appropriate version of the biblatex package.

A multilayer pushTASEP simulation

Simulations of inhomogeneous multilayer pushTASEP


I’ve done some simulations of a multilayer version of the pushTASEP in inhomogeneous space, in my new simulations gallery.

Technical details and more pictures are here.
