Statistics Seminars: Convex hulls of random walks

Presented by James Mcredmond, Durham University

24 April 2017 14:20 in CM221

Random walks are used in many applications to model the movement of particles, animals or stock prices. We consider the convex hull of the trajectory that the walk takes and present a collection of asymptotic results concerning the perimeter length, area and diameter. Some of our results are new, and others are already well known but for these we have been able to relax the assumptions made. This is joint work with O. Hryniv and A.R. Wade.
