On homogeneous and oscillating random walks on the integers

  title={On homogeneous and oscillating random walks on the integers},
  author={Julien Br'emont},
We study the recurrence of homogeneous and oscillating random walks on the integers, simplifying former works of Spitzer and Kemperman, respectively. We add general remarks and discuss some links with renewal theory. 
The oscillating random walk on $\mathbb{Z}$
The paper is concerned with a new approach for the recurrence property of the oscillating process on Z in Kemperman’s sense. In the case when the random walk is ascending on Z− and descending on Z+,

Random walk on countably infinite Abelian groups

Denumerable Markov chains
This textbook provides a systematic treatment of denumerable Markov chains, covering both the foundations of the subject and topics in potential theory and boundary theory. It is a discussion of

Markov chains in a stratified environment
We establish a recurrence criterion for a model of inhomogeneous random walk in Z in environment stratified by parallel affine hyperplanes. The asymptotics of the random walk is governed by some
On planar random walks in environments invariant by horizontal translations
We give a recurrence criterion for a model of planar random walk in environment invariant under horizontal translations. Some examples are next developed, for instance when the environment is
Random walks on randomly oriented lattices
Simple random walks on various types of partially horizontally oriented regular lattices are considered. The horizontal orientations of the lattices can be of various types (deterministic or random)
