I've seen the following remark in a number of papers but don't know what to make of it. In this paper by Cohn, Elkies and Propp, it is mentioned that the normalized average Height function ...
In this paper by Nordenstam, it is shown that a certain interlacing particle process that arises from uniformly random Aztec diamond tilings is amazingly similar to Warren's process. One of the ...
Imagine a "risk only" slot machine that takes 'coins' corresponding to some real number fraction of a dollar $p$, returns the coin with probability $p$, and eats the coin with probability $(1-p)$. ...
A particle lies on the real number line at the origin. For each step taken, the particle moves from its current position a distance (and direction) chosen equi-probably from range $[-1,r]$. However, ...
Let $D$ be the set of all Dyck paths on square grid of size $n\times n$. For any particular Dyck path, let $S(t)=X_1+X_2+\ldots +X_t$ store the path, where $X_i=\pm 1$. Being a Dyck path, we have ...
Given is a constant degree rooted tree of depth $D$. It is also known that the total number of nodes in the tree is at most $D^2$. There is a probabilistic process with discrete time steps on the ...
In the preface to the second edition of Daniel Stroock's book "Probability Theory: An Analytic View", there is this striking claim (on p. xv) ... I suspect that, for at least a decade, the most ...
