### Connection between degree of growth and return probabilities of random walks on Lie groups

Let $G$ be a finitely generated group of polynomial growth, let $\mu$ be a non-degenerate symmetric probability measure with finite support on $G$, and let $d$ be the degree of growth of $G$. ...

### How much do the classes of geodesic metrics and Green metrics on a Gromov hyperbolic group differ?

Background Let $G$ be a Gromov hyperbolic group. If $G$ acts properly discontinuously and cocompactly on a proper geodesic metric space $X$, then any bijective identification of $G$ with its orbit ...

### Nonmonotonicity of expected distance of a random walk

What's the simplest example of a reversible random walk $X_n$ on an infinite vertex-transitive graph such that the expected distance from the origin is not increasing, i.e. there exists $n$ such that: ...

### Quadratic variation for discrete Martingale

Is there any analogue of continuous martingale quadratic variation for the discrete case? If so, are there any theorems which characterize simple random walk using quadratic variation - similar to ...

### Width of a random convex polygon

Consider a planar (2D) random walk comprised of N steps. Consider the minimum convex polygon enclosing the N points visited by the random walker. Assume the definition of the width of a convex polygon ...

### Probability that a “closable” self-avoiding random walk forms a polygon

Consider a self-avoiding random walk on an infinite graph (for concreteness, the grid of 2-dimensional lattice points $\mathbb{Z}^2$), in which on each step, the next position is chosen uniformly at ...
Let $G_N$ be the group generated by elements $a_1,\ldots,a_N$ subject to the relations $a_i^2=1$ and $(a_ia_j)^3=1$. The growth function of $G_N$ is then f_N(t)=\frac{1+2t+2t^2+t^3}{1-Mt-Mt^2+\frac{...
