### Reference for the asymptotic mixing time of the random walk on the cycle

In Diaconis's book Group Representations in Probability and Statistics, Chapter 3C, there are explicit computations for the mixing time of the random walk on the cycle graph $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$, with $p$ ...

### Probability of getting through with a phone-call

Alice is quite popular. She gets called on her cell-phone in a Poisson$(\lambda)$ manner. She answers her calls when possible, and ignores them when in the middle of conversation. Since you know her ...

### Mixing time of a continuous time Markov chain with arbitrary rate matrix

I would like to calculate the mixing time of a continuous time starting from the rate matrix and not necessarily assuming that the time in between jumps have rate 1 - all I have is the (finite ...

### Mixing time for dimers on the square-octagon graph

Consider the "fortress graph" of order $n$ (see Figure 9 of http://faculty.uml.edu/jpropp/tiling/www/mdblum/arctic.html). It's been known empirically for twenty years that if one turns the set of ...
Let $(X,\mathcal{X},\mu)$ be a probability measure system, $T:X\to X$ be a $\mu$-preserving isomorphism on $X$. Let $A\in \mathcal{X}$ such that $\mu(\bigcup_{n\ge 0}T^nA)=1$, and $\mu_A$ be the ...
