### Generating random variables from the Cantor Distribution [closed]

I am looking for a method (exact, if possible, but at least asymptotically correct) for generating random variates from a Cantor Distribution? It seems like its abstract definition prevents this. In ...

### Drawing random variates from a partially described probability distribution

I have a probability distribution over $\{0,1\}^n$ but instead of knowing the full joint distribution $p(x_1,\dots,x_n)$, I only know $p(x_i=x_j)$ for each $i,j$. How could I draw a random binary ...

### Staggered timing on 2-D random walks by multiple agents

In 2-D lattice random walks by multiple drunks who can't step onto each other, mathematically I would just say the whole cellular automaton updates "at once".
But to simulate this on a computer, I ...

### Will a random walk on [0, inf) tend to infinity? [closed]

Consider a random walk on [0, inf) where you start at 0. With probability p = 0.5, you increase by 1. With probability (1-p) = 0.5, you decrease by 1, but not below 0.
As time goes to infinity, will ...
