  • Markov Chains, Random Walks, and Card Shuffling 

    Outlaw, Nolan (East Carolina University, 2016)
    A common question in the study of random processes pertains to card shuffling. Whether or not a deck of cards is random can have huge implications on any game being played with those particular cards. This thesis explores ...
  • Random Walks on Finite Fields and Heisenberg Groups 

    Zhu, Yi (East Carolina University, 2011)
    Let H be a finite group and [mu] a probability measure on H. This data determines an invariant random walk on H beginning from the identity element. The probability distribution for the state of the random walk after n ...
