Loop-Erased Walk

  • Gregory F. Lawler
Part of the Probability and Its Applications book series (PA)


In this chapter we discuss the loop-erased or Laplacian self-avoiding random walk. We will primarily use the loop-erased characterization of the walk because it is the one that allows for rigorous analysis of the model. In Proposition 7.3.1 we show that this is the same as the Laplacian random walk defined in Section 6.5.
