Here, $ Z, Z' $ are stochastic elements that Strassen's
theorem states exist under a stochastic domination

stochastically monotone Markov chains is pointed out.
Usually the theorem is formulated with the assumption
that $ \leq $ is a partial ordering; the proof reveals
that a pre-ordering suffices.",

However, it was shown by Le Gall that the trace, in

d \ge (\alpha + 1) / (\alpha - 1) $. He offered a
sufficient condition for the uniqueness and conjectured
that a uniqueness should be valid if the singular part

establish a necessary condition for the uniqueness

this is true for general $ 2 \times m $ matrices. We
construct a $ 2 \times 1 $ matrix-valued function which

and simulating a Markov chain with stationary

bounds on the chain's mixing time, so even if
simulations suggest rapid mixing one cannot infer
rigorous confidence intervals for $ \bar {g}$. But
suppose there is also a separate method which (slowly)
gives samples exactly from $ \pi $. Using $n$ exact
samples, one could immediately get a confidence
interval of length $ O(n^{-1 / 2})$. But one can do
better. Use each exact sample as the initial state of a
Markov chain, and run each of these $n$ chains for $m$
steps. We show how to construct confidence intervals
which are always valid, and which, if the (unknown)
relaxation time of the chain is sufficiently small
relative to $ m / n$, have length $ O(n^{-1} \log n)$

Laguerre ensemble and as such we shall refer to it as
the {\em Laguerre process\/}. The purpose of this note
is to remark that, assuming $ n > p $, the eigenvalues
of $ M(t) $ evolve like $p$ independent squared Bessel
processes of dimension $ 2 (n - p + 1)$, conditioned
(in the sense of Doob) never to collide. More
precisely, the function $ h(x) = \prod_{i < j}(x_i -
x_j)$ is harmonic with respect to $p$ independent
squared Bessel processes of dimension $ 2 (n - p + 1)$,
and the eigenvalue process has the same law as the
corresponding Doob $h$-transform. In the case where the
entries of $ A(t)$ are {\em real\/} Brownian motions, $
(M(t))_{t > 0}$ is the Wishart process considered by
Bru (1991). There it is shown that the eigenvalues of $
M(t)$ evolve according to a certain diffusion process,
the generator of which is given explicitly. An
interpretation in terms of non-colliding processes does
not seem to be possible in this case. We also identify
a class of processes (including Brownian motion,
squared Bessel processes and generalised
Ornstein--Uhlenbeck processes) which are all amenable
to the same $h$-transform, and compute the
corresponding transition densities and upper tail
asymptotics for the first collision time.",

when large deviation principles for the conditional

large deviation principle for the unconditional
distributions. Chaganty (1997) also considered this

$n$ by $n$ matrix where the entries are iid normal
random variables. Let $Z$ be the number of rows in the
support of the optimal strategy for player I given the
realization of the matrix. (The optimal strategy is
a.s. unique and $Z$ a.s. coincides with the number of
columns of the support of the optimal strategy for
player II.) Faris an Maier (see the references) make
simulations that suggest that as $n$ gets large $Z$ has
a distribution close to binomial with parameters $n$
and 1/2 and prove that $ P(Z = n) < 2^{-(k - 1)}$. In
this paper a few more theoretically rigorous steps are
taken towards the limiting distribution of $Z$: It is
shown that there exists $ a < 1 / 2$ (indeed $ a <
0.4$) such that $ P((1 / 2 - a)n < Z < (1 / 2 + a)n)$
tends to 1 as $n$ increases. It is also shown that the
expectation of $Z$ is $ (1 / 2 + o(1))n$. We also prove
that the value of the game with probability $ 1 - o(1)$
is at most $ C n^{-1 / 2}$ for some finite $C$
independent of $n$. The proof suggests that an upper
bound is in fact given by $ f(n) / n$, where $ f(n)$ is
any sequence tending to infinity as $n$ increases, and
it is pointed out that if this is true, then the
variance of $Z$ is $ o(n^2)$ so that any $ a > 0$ will
do in the bound on $Z$ above.",

rate in the number of edges of the number of lattice
animals containing the origin which have
surface-area-to-volume ratio $ \beta $. The function
$f$ is bounded above by a function which may be written
in an explicit form. For low values of $ \beta $ ($
\beta \leq 1 / p_c - 1$), equality holds, as originally
demonstrated by F. Delyon. For higher values ($ \beta >
1 / p_c - 1$), the inequality is strict.\par
We introduce two critical exponents, one of which
describes how quickly $f$ falls away from the explicit
form as $ \beta $ rises from $ 1 / p_c - 1$, and the
second of which describes how large clusters appear in
the marginally subcritical regime of the percolation
model. We demonstrate that the pair of exponents must
satisfy certain inequalities. Other such inequalities
yield sufficient conditions for the absence of an
infinite cluster at the critical value (c.f.
{citetechrep}). The first exponent is related to one of
a more conventional nature in the scaling theory of
percolation, that of correlation size. In deriving this
relation, we find that there are two possible
behaviours, depending on the value of the first
exponent, for the typical surface-area-to-volume ratio
of an unusually large cluster in the marginally
subcritical regime.",

thinning a Poisson process where each point has a

grain that is overlapped by one of larger or equal
weight. In the limit as the intensity of the Poisson
process tends to infinity, the model can be identified
with the intact grains in the dead leaves model if the
weights are independent of the grain sizes. In this
case we can show that the volume fraction is at most $
1 / 2^d $ for $ d = 1 $ or $2$ if the shape is fixed,
but the size and the orientation are random. The upper
bound is achieved for centrally symmetric sets of the
same size and orientation. For general $d$ we can show
the upper bound, $ 1 / 2^d$, for spherical grains with
two--point radius distribution. If dependence between
weight and size is allowed, it is possible to achieve a

which involves two players, {\em the controller\/} and

rule which halts the game. The controller chooses the
diffusion coefficient of the corresponding state
process which is allowed to degenerate. At the end of
the game, the controller pays the stopper, the amount $
E \int_0^{\tau } e^{- \alpha t} C(Z_x(t))d t $, where $
Z_x(\cdot) $ represents the state process with initial
position $x$ and $ \alpha $ is a positive constant.
Here $ C(\cdot)$ is a reward function where the set $
\{ x : C(x) > 0 \} $ is an open interval which contains
the origin. Under some assumptions on the reward
function $ C(\cdot)$ and the drift coefficient of the
state process, we show that this game has a value.
Furthermore, this value function is Lipschitz
continuous, but it fails to be a $ C^1$ function.",

that the covariance matrix of $ I(l)$ is convergent.

proof of the strongest version of the important fact
that the isoperimetric profile of the infinite cluster
basically coincides with the profile of the original
lattice. This implies, e.g., that simple random walk on
the largest cluster of a finite box $ [ - n, n]^d$ with
high probability has $ L^\infty $-mixing time $ \Theta
(n^2)$, and that the heat kernel (return probability)
on the infinite cluster a.s. decays like $ p_n(o, o) =
O(n^{-d / 2})$. Versions of these results have been
proven by Benjamini and Mossel (2003), Mathieu and Remy
(2004), Barlow (2004) and Rau (2006). For general
infinite graphs, we prove that anchored isoperimetric
properties survive supercritical percolation, provided
that the probability of the cluster of the origin being
finite with large boundary decays rapidly; this is the
case for a large class of graphs when $p$ is close to
1. As an application (with the help of some entropy
inequalities), we give a short conceptual proof of a

spaces. This is a class of models which contains those
studied by Wigner and Dyson, along with seven others
arising in condensed matter physics. Like Wigner's, our
results are universal in that they only depend on
certain assumptions about the moments of the matrix
entries, but not on the specifics of their
distributions. What is more, we allow for a certain
amount of dependence among the matrix entries, in the
spirit of a recent generalization of Wigner's theorem,
due to Schenker and Schulz-Baldes. As a byproduct, we
obtain a universality result for sample covariance
matrices with dependent entries.",

This phenomenon follows from another, maybe more
intuitive fact, applied to $ Y := \log_{10}X $: For
many real random variables $Y$, the remainder $ U := Y
- \lfloor Y \rfloor $ is approximately uniformly
distributed on $ [0, 1)$. The present paper provides
new explicit bounds for the latter approximation in
terms of the total variation of the density of $Y$ or
some derivative of it. These bounds are an interesting
and powerful alternative to Fourier methods. As a

large deviation in edge placement. A secondary

For $ 2 d \beta < \alpha $, our result can also imply
the a.s. finiteness of the total occupation time (over

is automorphism invariant and local. In particular, we

ball at random in $A$ and place it in $B$, or
vice-versa (provided of course that $A$, or $B$, is not
empty). The number of balls in $B$ after $n$ steps is
of order $ \sqrt n$, and this number remains
essentially the same after $ \sqrt n$ further steps.
Observe that each ball in the urn $B$ after $n$ steps
has a probability bounded away from $0$ and $1$ to be
placed back in the urn $A$ after $ \sqrt n$ additional
steps. So, even though the number of balls in $B$ does
not evolve significantly between $n$ and $ n + \sqrt
n$, the precise contain of urn $B$ does.\par
This elementary observation is the source of an
interesting two-time-scale phenomenon which we
illustrate using a simple model of
fragmentation-coagulation. Inspired by Pitman's
construction of coalescing random forests, we consider
for every $ n \in \mathbb {N}$ a uniform random tree
with $n$ vertices, and at each step, depending on the
outcome of an independent fair coin tossing, either we
remove one edge chosen uniformly at random amongst the
remaining edges, or we replace one edge chosen
uniformly at random amongst the edges which have been
removed previously. The process that records the sizes
of the tree-components evolves by fragmentation and
coagulation. It exhibits subaging in the sense that
when it is observed after $k$ steps in the regime $ k
\sim t n + s \sqrt n$ with $ t > 0$ fixed, it seems to
reach a statistical equilibrium as $ n \to \infty $;
but different values of $t$ yield distinct
pseudo-stationary distributions.",

Coffman, Courtois, Gilbert and Piret [1], each vertex
of $ \mathbb {Z}^d $ receives an initial amount of a
resource, and, at each iteration, transfers all of its
resource to the neighboring vertex which currently
holds the maximum amount of resource. In [4] it was
shown that, if the distribution of the initial
quantities of resource is invariant under lattice
translations, then the flow of resource at each vertex
eventually stops almost surely, thus solving a problem
posed in [2]. In this article we prove the existence of
translation-invariant initial distributions for which
resources nevertheless escape to infinity, in the sense

jump, the present description is in terms of excursions
away from the supremum continued up to a return time.
In the unbounded variation case with zero Gaussian
coefficient previously excluded, excursions start
negative continuously, but the excursion measures away
from the right inverse and away from a point are
mutually singular. We also provide a new construction

$M$ has a real second-largest (in absolute value)

eigenvector $ \nu \neq 0$. Letting $ \sigma_v =

estimator, which was introduced by Mossel and Peres
(2003) in the context of the ``recontruction problem''
on trees: \begin{equation*} S_n = (b\lambda)^{-n}
\sum_{x\in L_n} \sigma_x. \end{equation*} As noted by
Mossel and Peres, when $ b \lambda^2 > 1$ (the
so-called Kesten-Stigum reconstruction phase) the
quantity $ S_n$ has uniformly bounded variance. Here,
we give bounds on the moment-generating functions of $
S_n$ and $ S_n^2$ when $ b \lambda^2 > 1$. Our results
have implications for the inference of evolutionary

abstract = "Branching annihilating random walk (BARW) is a generic
term for a class of interacting particle systems on $
\mathbb {Z}^d $ in which, as time evolves, particles
execute random walks, produce offspring (on
neighbouring sites) and (instantaneously) disappear
when they meet other particles. Much of the interest in
such models stems from the fact that they typically
lack a monotonicity property called {\em
attractiveness\/}, which in general makes them
exceptionally hard to analyse and in particular highly
sensitive in their qualitative long-time behaviour to
even slight alterations of the branching and
annihilation mechanisms. In this short note, we
introduce so-called {\em caring\/} double-branching
annihilating random walk (cDBARW) on $ \mathbb {Z} $,
and investigate its long-time behaviour. It turns out
that it either allows survival with positive
probability if the branching rate is greater than $ 1 /
2 $, or a.s. extinction if the branching rate is
smaller than $ 1 / 3 $ and (additionally) branchings
are only admitted for particles which have at least one
neighbouring particle (so-called 'cooperative
branching'). Further, we show a.s. extinction for all
branching rates for a variant of this model, where
branching is only allowed if offspring can be placed at
odd distance between each other. It is the latter
(extinction-type) results which seem remarkable, since
they appear to hint at a general extinction result for
a non-trivial parameter range in the so-called
'parity-preserving universality class', suggesting the
existence of a 'true' phase transition. The rigorous
proof of such a non-trivial phase transition remains a
particularly challenging open problem.",

a compactly supported probability measure $ \sigma $.
Define the random matrix $ Y_p(N) $ as $ Y_p(N) =

correlated Gaussian entries and covariance matrix $

The standard martingale framework of stochastic finance

strategies have infinite transaction cost. The main
question that arises out of [7] is whether it is
possible to give a convenient condition to guarantee
that a trading strategy has no arbitrage. Such a
condition was proposed and studied in [6] and [1], the
so-called stickiness property, whereby an asset's price
is never certain to exit a ball within a predetermined
finite time. In this paper, we define the
multidimensional extension of the stickiness property,
to handle arbitrage-free conditions for markets with
multiple assets and proportional transaction costs. We
show that this condition is sufficient for a
multi-asset model to be free of arbitrage. We also show
that d-dimensional fractional Brownian models are

which relates the expected exit time of Brownian motion
from a simply connected domain with the power series of
a conformal map into that domain. We use the lemma to
calculate the expected exit time from a number of
domains, and in the process describe a probabilistic
method for summing certain series. In particular, we
give a proof of Euler's classical result that $ \zeta
(2) = \pi^2 / 6 $. We also show how the relationship
between the power series and the Brownian exit time
gives several immediate consequences when teamed with a
deep result of de Branges concerning the coefficients
of power series of normalized conformal maps. We
conclude by stating an extension of the lemma in
question to domains which are not simply connected.",

and mutation rate $ r > 0$. Let $ \Pi^{(n)}$ be the
restriction of $ \Pi $ to the sample. It is shown that
$ M_n / n$, the fraction of external branches of $
\Pi^{(n)}$ which are affected by at least one mutation,
converges almost surely and in $ L^p$ ($ p \geq 1$) to
$ M := \int^{\infty }_0 r e^{-rt}S_t d t$, where $ S_t$
is the fraction of singleton blocks of $ \Pi_t$. Since
for coalescents without proper frequencies, the effects
of mutations on non-external branches is neglectible
for the asymptotics of $ K_n / n$, it is shown that $
K_n / n \rightarrow M$ for $ n \rightarrow \infty $ in
$ L^p$ $ (p \geq 1)$. For simple coalescents, this
convergence is shown to hold almost surely. The almost
sure results are based on a combination of the Kingman

chain which, if rapidly mixing, would provide an
efficient procedure for sampling independent sets in a
bipartite graph. Such a procedure would be a
breakthrough because it would give an efficient
randomised algorithm for approximately counting
independent sets in a bipartite graph, which would in
turn imply the existence of efficient approximation
algorithms for a number of significant counting
problems whose computational complexity is so far
unresolved. Their Markov chain is based on a novel
two-variable graph polynomial which, when specialised
to a bipartite graph, and evaluated at the point (1/2,
1), gives the number of independent sets in the graph.
The Markov chain is promising, in the sense that it
overcomes the most obvious barrier to rapid mixing.
However, we show here, by exhibiting a sequence of
counterexamples, that its mixing timeis exponential in
the size of the input when the input is chosen from a
particular infinite family of bipartite graphs.",

This result is of particular interest as it is related
to the bivariate ladder height process $ ((T_n, H_n), n
\geq 0)$, where $ T_r$ is the $r$ th strict increasing
ladder time, and $ H_r = S_{T_r}$ the corresponding
ladder height. The bivariate renewal mass function $
g(n, d x) = \sum_{r = 0}^{\infty }P(T_r = n, H_r \in d
x)$ can then be written as $ g(n, d x) = P(S_n \in d x|
\tau > n)P(\tau > n)$, and since the behaviour of $
P(\tau > n)$ is known for asymptotically stable random
walks, our results can be rephrased as large deviation
estimates of $ g(n, [x, x + \Delta))$.",

an open path from $O$ to the boundary of the box. It is

represented by the system of independent CBMs weighted
by this determinantal martingale. From this CBM
representation, the Eynard-Mehta-type correlation
kernel is derived and the Dyson model is shown to be
determinantal. The CBM representation is a useful
extension of $h$-transform, since it works also in
infinite particle systems. Using this representation,
we prove the tightness of a series of processes, which
converges to the Dyson model with an infinite number of

considering the number of balls falling down on each
point of $ \mathbb R^D $, when the centers and the
radii of the balls are thrown at random following a
Poisson point process in $ \mathbb R^D \times \mathbb
R^+ $ with an appropriate intensity measure. It
provides a simple description for a non Gaussian random
field that is centered, has stationary increments and
has the same covariance function as the fractional
Brownian field (fBf). The present paper is concerned
with specific properties of the fPf, comparing them to
their analogues for the fBf. On the one hand, we
concentrate on the finite-dimensional distributions
which reveal strong differences between the Gaussian
world of the fBf and the Poissonian world of the fPf.
We provide two different representations for the
marginal distributions of the fPf: as a Chentsov field,
and on a regular grid in $ \mathbb R^D $ with a
numerical procedure for simulations. On the other hand,
we prove that the Hurst index estimator based on
quadratic variations which is commonly used for the fBf
is still strongly consistent for the fPf. However the
computations for the proof are very different from the
usual ones.",

metric spaces with a probability measure) is becoming
more and more important as state space for stochastic

(continuum) metric measure trees. Greven, Pfaffelhuber
and Winter introduced the Gromov--Prohorov metric $
d_{\mathrm {GP}} $ on the space of metric measure
spaces and showed that it induces the Gromov-weak
topology. They also conjectured that this topology
coincides with the topology induced by Gromov's $
\underline \Box_1 $ metric. Here, we show that this is
indeed true, and the metrics are even bi-Lipschitz
equivalent. More precisely, $ d_{\mathrm {GP}} = \frac
12 \underline \Box_{\frac 12} $, and hence $ d_{\mathrm
{GP}} \le \underline \Box_1 \le 2 d_{\mathrm {GP}} $.
The fact that different approaches lead to equivalent
metrics underlines their importance and also that of
the induced Gromov-weak topology. As an application, we
give an easy proof of the known fact that the map
associating to a lower semi-continuous excursion the
coded $ \mathbb {R}$-tree is Lipschitz continuous when
the excursions are endowed with the (non-separable)
uniform metric. We also introduce a new, weaker, metric
topology on excursions, which has the advantage of
being separable and making the space of bounded
excursions a Lusin space. We obtain continuity also for
this new topology.\par",

influences of functions on $ \{ 0, 1 \}^n $ was
extended to the setting of functions on Schreier
graphs. Specifically, it was shown that for an
undirected Schreier graph $ \text {Sch}(G, X, U) $ with
log Sobolev constant $ \rho $ and generating set $U$
closed under conjugation, if $ f : X \to \{ 0, 1 \} $
then\par

Here $ \mathcal {E}[f]$ denotes the average of $f$'s
influences, and $ \text {MaxInf}[f]$ denotes their
maximum. In this work we investigate the extent to
which this result is sharp. We show:\par
1. The condition that $U$ is closed under conjugation
cannot in general be eliminated.\par
2. The log-Sobolev constant cannot be replaced by the
modified log-Sobolev constant.\par
3. The result cannot be improved for the Cayley graph
on $ S_n$ with transpositions.\par
4. The result {\em can\/} be improved for the Cayley
graph on $ \mathbb {Z}_m^n$ with standard

abstract = "We introduce a new family of probability distributions
on the set of pure states of a finite dimensional
quantum system. Without any a priori assumptions, the
most natural measure on the set of pure state is the
uniform (or Haar) measure. Our family of measures is
indexed by a time parameter $t$ and interpolates
between a deterministic measure ($ t = 0$) and the
uniform measure ($ t = \infty $). The measures are
constructed using a Brownian motion on the unitary
group $ \mathcal U_N$. Remarkably, these measures have
a $ \mathcal U_{N - 1}$ invariance, whereas the usual
uniform measure has a $ \mathcal U_N$ invariance. We
compute several averages with respect to these measures
using as a tool the Laplace transform of the
coordinates.",

of choosing to receive input; if it does, and if at
least one of its input vertices were in state 1 at the
previous instant, then it is labelled with a 1; in all
other cases, it is labelled with a 0. $r$ and $q$ are
kept fixed and $n$ is taken to infinity. Improving a
result of Chatterjee and Durrett, we show that if $ q r

negative association. In this paper it is shown that
(tree-ordered) pivotal\slash Srinivasan sampling also
satisfies the BK inequality. This is done via a mapping
from increasing sets of samples to sets of match

interface has an invariant law in which the number of

prove that this implies noncoexistence, i.e., all
invariant laws of the process are concentrated on the
constant configurations. The proof is based on special

Markov chain $ M_n = A_n M_{n - 1} $ on the cone $
\mathbb {R}^d_{\ge } \setminus \{ 0 \} = \mathbb

functions of this Markov chain. In particular, it is
shown that all bounded harmonic functions in $ \mathcal
{C}_b(\mathbb {S}_\ge) \otimes \mathcal {C}_b(\mathbb

originally due to Kesten [Renewal theory for
functionals of a Markov chain with general state space,
Ann. Prob. 2 (1974), 355 - 386], but is considerably
shortened here. A similar result for invertible
matrices is given as well.\par

When the measure $ \Lambda $ obeys $ \int_0^1 - \log (1
- x)x^{-2} \Lambda (d x) < \infty $, some particular
behaviour in the frequency of the allele can occur. The
selection coefficient $ \alpha $ may be large enough to
override the random genetic drift. In other words, for
certain selection pressure, the disadvantaged allele
will vanish asymptotically with probability one. This
phenomenon cannot occur in the classical Wright--Fisher
diffusion. We study the dual process of the $ \Lambda
$-Wright--Fisher process with selection and prove this
result through martingale arguments.\par

abstract = "Random walks in random sceneries (RWRS) are simple
examples of stochastic processes in disordered media.
They were introduced at the end of the 70's by
Kesten-Spitzer and Borodin, motivated by the
construction of new self-similar processes with
stationary increments. Two sources of randomness enter
in their definition: a random field $ \xi = (\xi
(x))_{x \in \mathbb {Z}^d} $ of i.i.d. random
variables, which is called the random scenery, and a
random walk $ S = (S_n)_{n \in \mathbb {N}} $ evolving
in $ \mathbb {Z}^d $, independent of the scenery. The
RWRS $ Z = (Z_n)_{n \in \mathbb {N}} $ is then defined
as the accumulated scenery along the trajectory of the
random walk, i.e., $ Z_n := \sum_{k = 1}^n \xi (S_k) $.
The law of $Z$ under the joint law of $ \xi $ and $S$
is called {"annealed}'', and the conditional law given
$ \xi $ is called {"quenched}''. Recently, functional
central limit theorems under the quenched law were
proved for $Z$ by the first two authors for a class of
transient random walks including walks with finite
variance in dimension $ d \ge 3$. In this paper we
extend their results to dimension $ d = 2$.",

abstract = "In this text, we consider an $N$ by $N$ random matrix
$X$ such that all but $ o(N)$ rows of $X$ have $W$ non
identically zero entries, the other rows having less
than $W$ entries (such as, for example, standard or
cyclic band matrices). We always suppose that $ 1 \ll W
\ll N$. We first prove that if the entries are
independent, centered, have variance one, satisfy a
certain tail upper-bound condition and $ W \gg (\log
N)^{6(1 + \alpha)}$, where $ \alpha $ is a positive
parameter depending on the distribution of the entries,
then the largest eigenvalue of $ X / \sqrt {W}$
converges to the upper bound of its limit spectral
distribution, that is $2$, as for Wigner matrices. This
extends some previous results by Khorunzhiy and Sodin
where less hypotheses were made on $W$, but more
hypotheses were made about the law of the entries and
the structure of the matrix. Then, under the same
hypotheses, we prove a delocalization result for the
eigenvectors of $X$, precisely that most of them cannot
be essentially localized on less than $ W / \log (N)$
entries. This lower bound on the localization length
has to be compared to the recent result by
Steinerberger, which states that the localization
length in the edge is $ \ll W^{7 / 5}$ or there is
strong interaction between two eigenvectors in an
interval of length $ W^{7 / 5}$.",
