Additional Notes: This review is dedicated to the memory of Oded Schramm, who worked in circle packing before his discovery of stochastic Loewner evolution and its applications to critical phenomena. This extraordinary mathematician’s untimely death on 01 September 2008 in a hiking accident was a great loss for our community.
