Random Walks - Lecture Notes

Spring, 2009


These are some "lecture notes" and related material for a talk I gave recently. The announcement for the talk looked like this:

Speaker: Dr. Tom Carter, Department of Computer Science, California State University, Stanislaus

Title: Peripatetic -- a Random Walk Through Random Walks

Abstract: This talk will be a brief exploration of some topics in Random Walks. I'm hoping to reach applications of random walks (and diffusion) to some biology questions.
