# Directionally Reinforced Random Walks

@article{Mauldin1996DirectionallyRR, title={Directionally Reinforced Random Walks}, author={R. Daniel Mauldin and Michael Monticino and Heinrich v. Weizs{\"a}cker}, journal={Advances in Mathematics}, year={1996}, volume={117}, pages={239-252} }

Abstract This paper introduces and analyzes a class of directionally reinforced random walks. The work is motivated by an elementary model for time and space correlations in ocean surface wave fields. We develop some basic properties of these walks. For instance, we investigate recurrence properties and give conditions under which the limiting continuous versions of the walks are Gaussian diffusion processes.

### Limit Distributions of Directionally Reinforced Random Walks

- Mathematics
- 1998

Abstract As a mathematical model for time and space correlations in ocean surface wave fields, Mauldin, Monticino, and von Weizsacker (1996,Adv. in Math.117, 239–252), introduced directionally…

### On a directionally reinforced random walk

- Mathematics
- 2011

We consider a generalized version of a directionally reinforced random walk, which was originally introduced by Mauldin, Monticino, and von Weizsacker in [20]. Our main result is a stable limit…

### Linearly edge-reinforced random walks

- Mathematics
- 2006

We review results on linearly edge-reinforced random walks. On finite graphs, the process has the same distribution as a mixture of reversible Markov chains. This has applications in Bayesian…

### Persistent random walks

- Mathematics
- 2015

We consider a walker that at each step keeps the same direction with a probability
that depends on the time already spent in the direction the walker is currently moving. In this paper, we study…

— We study dynamical systems generated by a motion of a particle in an array of scatterers distributed in a lattice. Such deterministic cellular automata are called Lorentz-type lattice gases or…

### THE SCALING LIMIT OF SENILE REINFORCED RANDOM WALK.

- Mathematics
- 2007

This paper proves that the scaling limit of nearest-neighbour senile reinforced random walk is Brownian Motion when the time T spent on the first edge has finite mean. We show that under suitable…

### A DIFFUSION LIMIT FOR GENERALIZED CORRELATED RANDOM WALKS

- Mathematics

A generalized correlated random walk is a process of partial sums Xk = k P j=1 Y j such that (X;Y ) forms a Markov chain. For a sequence (X n ) of such processes where each Y n j takes only two…
