A note on quenched moderate deviations for Sinai's random walk in random environment

Francis Comets, Serguei Popov (2010)

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

We consider the continuous time, one-dimensional random walk in random environment in Sinai's regime. We show that the probability for the particle to be, at time t and in a typical environment, at a distance larger than ta (0<a<1) from its initial position, is exp{-Const ⋅ ta/[(1 - a)lnt](1 + o(1))}.

A note on quenched moderate deviations for Sinai’s random walk in random environment

Francis Comets, Serguei Popov (2004)

ESAIM: Probability and Statistics

We consider the continuous time, one-dimensional random walk in random environment in Sinai’s regime. We show that the probability for the particle to be, at time t and in a typical environment, at a distance larger than t a ( 0 &lt; a &lt; 1 ) from its initial position, is exp { - Const · t a / [ ( 1 - a ) ln t ] ( 1 + o ( 1 ) ) } .

A remark concerning random walks with random potentials

Yakov Sinai (1995)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We consider random walks where each path is equipped with a random weight which is stationary and independent in space and time. We show that under some assumptions the arising probability distributions are in a sense uniformly absolutely continuous with respect to the usual probability distribution for symmetric random walks.

Copolymer at selective interfaces and pinning potentials : weak coupling limits

Nicolas Petrelis (2009)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

We consider a simple random walk of length N, denoted by (Si)i∈{1, …, N}, and we define (wi)i≥1 a sequence of centered i.i.d. random variables. For K∈ℕ we define ((γi−K, …, γiK))i≥1 an i.i.d sequence of random vectors. We set β∈ℝ, λ≥0 and h≥0, and transform the measure on the set of random walk trajectories with the hamiltonian λ∑i=1N(wi+h)sign(Si)+β∑j=−KK∑i=1Nγij1{Si=j}. This transformed path measure describes an hydrophobic(philic) copolymer interacting with a layer of width 2K around an interface...

Excited against the tide: a random walk with competing drifts

Mark Holmes (2012)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

We study excited random walks in i.i.d. random cookie environments in high dimensions, where the k th cookie at a site determines the transition probabilities (to the left and right) for the k th departure from that site. We show that in high dimensions, when the expected right drift of the first cookie is sufficiently large, the velocity is strictly positive, regardless of the strengths and signs of subsequent cookies. Under additional conditions on the cookie environment, we show that the limiting...

Giant component and vacant set for random walk on a discrete torus

Itai Benjamini, Alain-Sol Sznitman (2008)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We consider random walk on a discrete torus E of side-length N , in sufficiently high dimension d . We investigate the percolative properties of the vacant set corresponding to the collection of sites which have not been visited by the walk up to time u N d . We show that when u is chosen small, as N tends to infinity, there is with overwhelming probability a unique connected component in the vacant set which contains segments of length const log N . Moreover, this connected component occupies a non-degenerate...
