Abstract: 

A formula for the asymptotic distribution of the partition function of random energy cascades associated with tree polymers under strong disorder is obtained. The approach also provides a new representation of Aidekon's constant C* for the asymptotic distribution of extremes of a branching random walk. This is based on joint work with Partha Dey, Courant Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
