In science:

In the case when {ck } are independent standard Gaussian random variables, the correlation functions are SO(d + 1)-invariant, and the average number of the common real zeros is the square root of the total number of common complex zeros (see [EK], [Kos], [ShSm]).
Correlations between zeros of non-Gaussian random polynomials
For some special families of finite groups this has been done by Kovacs and Sim [KoS].

Kenyon, Okounkov and Sheffield [KOS] showed that these random surfaces converge a.s. to a solution of (1.4) with F and the polygon N (called the Newton polygon) depending on G.

Under the identification (6) and (11), the induced map RV cri (g) → RWcri (g,f ) is identified the restriction map C[g∗ ]G → C[S], and hence is injective [Kos, P1].
W-algebras at the critical level
In the case of the hexagon it was established in [BKMM] and [G] (see also [K1], [KOS] and [J1], [J2], [JN]) that locally near every point of the limit shape, the asymptotics of the random surface are directed by (uniquely defined [Sh]) ergodic translation invariant Gibbs measure on tilings of the whole plane.
