Conformal welding of dendrites

Peter Lin
University of Washington

Conformal welding is a way of gluing Riemann surfaces along their boundary; however, the existence and uniqueness of the resulting object is in general difficult to determine; this is the conformal welding problem.

We prove that a natural conformal welding problem associated to the continuum random tree (CRT) has a (unique) solution, giving rise to a `canonical’ random embedding of the CRT in the plane.
