Abstract: Self-avoiding walks (SAW) are an interesting combinatorial model in addition to being useful for modeling physical objects like polymers. I'll talk about some recent developments in finding new solvable classes of SAW, as well as some new models of polymer adsorption. And just for you physics people, I may even utter the words "free energy" once or twice.
