Random Growth Problems and Random Matrices
The shortest route between two points is a straight line: this is one of the first lessons we teach in basic geometry. In practice, it is false, because of obstacles  otherwise we would travel from London to New Zealand's Antipodes Islands by tunnelling directly through the centre of the earth. Read more
