Stats4Grads: Random walks, some properties and examples - a lighthearted introduction
22 February 2017 13:00 in CM105
Random walks play an important role in many areas of mathematics. Some functionals of random walks such as the perimeter length of the convex hull, and the diameter of the walk have been considered by several authors, I will present a brief history of these results. We have filled some gaps in the literature, so I will explain these new results and others which, by using different methods, have reduced the assumptions necessary on some of the previously known formulae. The talk will be very easy-going, and should be enjoyable even without any prior knowledge of the topic!
