A Lower Bound for the EndtoEnd Distance of SelfAvoiding Walk
For an $N$step selfavoiding walk on the hypercubic lattice ${\bf Z}^d$,
we prove that the meansquare endtoend distance is at least
$N^{4/(3d)}$ times a constant.
This implies that the associated critical exponent $\nu$ is
at least $2/(3d)$, assuming that $\nu$ exists.

Ordering the Representations of $S_n$ Using the Interchange Process
Inspired by Aldous' conjecture for
the spectral gap of the interchange process and its recent
resolution by Caputo, Liggett, and Richthammer, we define
an associated order $\prec$ on the irreducible representations of $S_n$. Aldous'
conjecture is equivalent to certain representations being comparable
in this order, and hence determining the ``Aldous order'' completely is a
generalized question. We show a few additional entries for this order.

Percolation on Penrose tilings
In Bernoulli site percolation on Penrose tilings there are
two natural definitions of the critical probability.
This paper shows that they are equal on almost all Penrose tilings.
It also shows that for almost all Penrose tilings the number
of infinite clusters is almost surely~0 or~1.
The results generalize to percolation on a large class of aperiodic
tilings in arbitrary dimension, to percolation on ergodic subgraphs
of $\hbox{\Bbbvii Z}^d$, and to other percolation processes, including
Bernoulli bond percolation.

Lattice trees and superBrownian motion
This article discusses our recent proof that above eight dimensions
the scaling limit of sufficiently spreadout lattice trees is the variant
of superBrownian motion called {\it integrated superBrownian excursion\/}
($\ISE$), as conjectured by Aldous. The same is true for nearestneighbour
lattice trees in sufficiently high dimensions. The proof, whose details will
appear elsewhere, uses the lace expansion. Here, a related but simpler
analysis is applied to show that the scaling limit of a meanfield theory
is $\ISE$, in all dimensions. A connection is drawn between $\ISE$ and
certain generating functions and critical exponents, which may be useful
for the study of highdimensional percolation models at the critical point.
