Phase Transitions for the Distance of Random Walks with Applications to Genome Rearrangements


Research Area:

Abstract: We study phase transition phenomena for the distance of random walks on graphs. In particular, we show how this question relates to the theory of random graphs and to stochastic processes of coalescence and fragmentation. This question is also intimately connected to some problems in genome rearrangement.
