Abstract:

I will define a type of branching random walk which we have termed the stochastic Pascal's triangle and present an a.s. central limit theorem for it, and a result characterizing its range. If time permits, some other results on tree polymers may also be discussed, as well as connections to weak and strong disorder for tree polymers. This is based on joint work with my thesis advisor, Edward Waymire.
