comment 1d random walk probability of previous n positions
There seems to be a reflection principle lurking here. If you condition on the number of returns to 0 before hitting $i$, then reflecting each segment of returns lowers or raises $Q$ accordingly. It also might be useful to set up a recurrence of the form $P(p,q,i)$.

comment An Interesting Optimization Problem
@JohanWästlund: the requirement that each difference is positive kills off some possibilities. It seems like requiring each pair entries in the sequence to have the right sign gives a factor of 4, but this can't be the full explanation.

comment Characterizations of the GOE/GUE family of distributions
That's a great question. I'm not entirely if what I'm asking for is reasonable. I've added an example below my edit which I think encapsulates what I'm after.

comment Characterizations of the GOE/GUE family of distributions
Thanks, the second part is particularly enlightening. I've added a slight edit to the question. Basically, is there a non-random matrix characterization of these distributions?

comment Generating random weak k-bounded reverse plane partitions
@Per Alexandersson: it seems that the resulting semi standard young tableau needs to satisfy similar bounding criterion, now for each row. Unfortunately I don't see how something like a modified hook walk would give what I want.
