We show that, under mild assumptions on the limiting curve, a sequence of simple chordal planar curves converges uniformly whenever certain Loewner driving functions converge. We extend this result to random curves. The random version applies in particular to random lattice paths that have chordal SLEκ as a scaling limit, with κ < 8 (nonspace-filling).
Existing SLEκ convergence proofs often begin by showing that the Loewner driving functions of these paths (viewed from ∞) converge to Brownian motion. Unfortunately, this is not sufficient, and additional arguments are required to complete the proofs. We show that driving function convergence is sufficient if it can be established for both parametrization directions and a generic observation point.
