Consider deforming the path metric of a unimodular random graph by a (unimodular) reweighting of its vertices. In many instances, a well-chosen change of metric can be used to study the spectral measure, estimate the heat kernel, and bound the speed of the random walk. Even for extensively studied models like random planar maps (e.g., the uniform infinite planar triangulation) and critical...
