Random walk in random environment: the operator theory approach
Abstract: We examine a
random walker on a graph which is itself random. When is the
distribution of its position approximately gaussian? Following on
the work of Kipnis and Varadhan who brought spectral theory into this
problem, we show an unexpected connection to the spectral theory
of unbounded operators.
All terms will be explain in the talk. This is joint work with Balint Toth.
