    Suppose a person walks due east from point A for 10 seconds, then stops for 10 second

    Suppose a person walks due east from point A for 10 seconds, then stops for 10 seconds and finally turns around and walks back to point A during the next 10 seconds. Which of the following graphs represent the distance of the person from point A as a function of time measured in seconds? The...

    Random Walks

    If I had an integer lattice on a plane and a particle on a point on the lattice in the first quadrant, what is a good way to model the probability of the particle reaching either the x or y axis? The probability of the particle going up, down, left, right is always 1/4. And the particle always...

    'Random walks on boundary groups'

    Hi all, I'm going to take an advanced probability seminar next year - Random Walks on Boundary Groups, which my probability class lecturer recommended. The course book is "Markov Chains and Mixing Times" by Peres, Levin & Wilmer. I've read the first part of the book, which is an introduction...

    Random walks and the reflection principle.. HELP!

    Hey just going over notes from college and have hit a wall, I have attached the document, The problem is on page 2, it mentions the reflection principle, Im not sure where the (2i - j) value comes from?? Also If anyone has any good links on these two topics it would be much appreciated...

    Hitting and Cover time, Random Walks on Graphs

    Hi, I am trying to work out the hitting time and cover time for two points of a path on nodes 0,...., n-1. Any hints? I've come up with the recurrence relation: H(i,k) = H(i,k-1) + 2k -1 Help would be much appreciated!

    graph theory question about walks and cycles

    If a graph G has a closed walk of length at least three containing a vertex x, then G has a cycle containing x. Can anyone explain why this statement is true or false?

    A man walks then runs...

    A man walks at a speed of 2 km/h for 45 minutes and then runs at 4 km/h for 30 minutes. Let S km be the distance the man has run after t minutes. The distance travelled can be described by: S(t)=\left\{\begin{array}{ll}at &\mbox{ if } 0\leq t\leq c\\bt+d, & \mbox{ if } c<t\leq...

    Random Walks- Wald's Lemma

    Consider a random walk Ym on S ={0, 1, 2, ..., N } with periodic boundaries at 0 and N , that is P(Ym+1 = i + 1 | Ym = i) = p, P(Ym+1 = i − 1 | Ym = i) = q = 1 − p when i ∈ {1, 2, ..., N − 1} and P(Ym+1 = 1 | Ym = 0) = p, P(Ym+1 = N | Ym = 0) = q, P(Ym+1 = 0 | Ym = N ) = p...

    Gambler's Ruin - Random Walks

    Hi all, I was just doing a few exercise questions relating to Gambler's Ruin more specifically random walks pobabilites. I've come across this one particular problem im not too sure off. I cannot seem to make sense of the reflecting boundaries mentioned in the question. I was hoping someone...

    Markov Processes and Random Walks

    Hello all! I'm currently facing this problem that is giving me all kinds of fits. I'm relatively new to Markov processes, but I feel like I understand how they work. Unfortunately, figuring out the probabilities for this problem is beyond me. Can anyone lend a hand in explaining this problem...

    Walks and Matrices

    Let G be a graph with vertices (1,2,...,n) and adjacency matrix A= (a subtext ij) 1) Find an expression for the number of walks of the form i-k-j. I'm puzzled. I thought I had it figured out as: entry in ik + entry in kj -1 but this did not hold when I looked at graphs with...
