We will consider some aggregation processes in the complex plane (random snowflakes, the non-branching DLA process) such that the growth probabilities depend on the distribution of harmonic measure. These models are simpler than the original, physically important ``Diffusion Limited Aggregation" (DLA) process. They allow some rigorous statements and explain certain features of the DLA.

* Coffee, tea and cookies will be served in Math Lounge (Annex) Room 1115 at 3:15 p.m.
