Professor Vladas Sidoravicius' co-authored paper titled "Multi-particle diffusion limited aggregation" was published online on May 20 in Inventiones Mathematicae, one of the most prestigious mathematics journals in the world. The study shows that classical multi-particle diffusion limited aggregation model has linear growth in all directions at a certain density of particles. The paper is very novel in that it produces the first rigorous results of the aggregation model in dimension 2 (previous results were restricted to dimension 1).
Professor Vladas Sidoravicius, NYU Shanghai Professor of Mathematics and NYU Global Network Professor, unfortunately passed away on May 23, 2019. The study ranks among the major accomplishments of Sidoravicius, who had a prolific and illustrious career.
