    Random Walks on Infinite Graphs and Groups, Paperback by Woess, Wolfgang, ISBN , ISBN , Brand New, Free shipping in the US The main theme of this book is the interplay between random walks and discrete structure theory. For infinite graphs, a study of the heat kernel allows to solve the type problem—a problem of deciding whether the random walk is recurrent or transient. This book starts with elementary properties of the eigenvalues on finite graphs, continues with their estimates and applications, and concludes with heat kernel estimates on infinite graphs.

A random walk is a finite Markov chain that is time-reversible (see below). In fact, there is not much difference between the theory of random walks on graphs and the theory of finite Markov chains; every Markov chain can be viewed as random walk on a directed graph, if we allow weighted edges.

To give an idea, we mention here a few references, chosen 'at random': Schinzel [] Keste, n [] Erdo, s and Revesz [ The main theme of this book is the interplay between the behaviour of a class of stochastic processes (random walks) and discrete structure theory.

Besides a detailed exposition of probabilistic and structure theoretic aspects, links with spectral theory and discrete potential theory are also discussed. This introduction to random walks on infinite graphs gives particular emphasis to graphs with polynomial volume growth.

It offers an overview of analytic methods, starting with the connection between random walks and electrical resistance, and then proceeding to study the use of isoperimetric and Poincaré inequalities.

Random Walks on Infinite Graphs and Groups. publ. ed.) (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics). Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University by:. In mathematics, a random walk is a mathematical object, known as a stochastic or random process, that describes a path that consists of a succession of random steps on some mathematical space such as the integers.

An elementary example of a random walk is the random walk on the integer number line, which starts at 0 and at each step moves +1 or −1 with equal probability.Abstract.

We introduce two new techniques to the analysis on fractals. One is based on the presentation of the fractal as the boundary of a countable Gromov hyperbolic graph, whereas the other one consists in taking all possible “backward” extensions of the above hyperbolic graph and considering them as the classes of a discrete equivalence relation on an appropriate compact space.Continuous-time random walk 12 Other lattices 14 Other walks 16 Simple random walk on a graph Generating functions and loop measures Loop soup This project embarked with an idea of writing a book on the simple, nearest neighbor random walk.
