For κ ∈ (8/3, 4] , the generalized disconnection exponents have a physical interpretation in terms of planar Brownian loop-soups with intensity c ∈ (0, 1], which allows us to obtain the first prediction of the dimension of multiple points on the cluster boundaries of these loop-soups. In particular, according to our prediction, the dimension of double points on the cluster boundaries is strictly positive for c ∈ (0, 1) and equal to zero for the critical intensity c = 1, leading to an interesting open question of whether such points exist for the critical loop-soup. Our definition of the exponents is based on a certain general version of radial restriction measures that we construct and study. As an important tool, we introduce a new family of radial SLEs depending on κ and two additional parameters μ, ν, that we call radial hypergeometric SLEs. This is a natural but substantial extension of the family of radial SLEκ (ρ)s.", keywords = "Brownian loop-soup, Conformal restriction measure, Disconnection and intersection exponents, Hypergeometric SLE", author = "Wei Qian", year = "2021", month = feb, doi = "10.1007/s00440-020-01005-5", language = "English", volume = "179", pages = "117--164", journal = "Probability Theory and Related Fields", issn = "0178-8051", publisher = "Springer", number = "1-2", }
