We consider an ordinary one-dimensional recurrent random walk on ℤ. A self-repellent random walk is defined by changing the ordinary law of the random walk in the following way: A path gets a new relative weight by multiplying the old one with a factor 1-β for every self intersection of the path. 0<β<1 is a parameter.

It is shown that if the jump distribution of the random walk has an exponential moment and if β is small enough then the displacement of the endpoint is asymptotically of the order of the length of the path.

## Abstract

We consider an ordinary one-dimensional recurrent random walk on ℤ. A self-repellent random walk is defined by changing the ordinary law of the random walk in the following way: A path gets a new relative weight by multiplying the old one with a factor 1-β for every self intersection of the path. 0<β<1 is a parameter.

It is shown that if the jump distribution of the random walk has an exponential moment and if β is small enough then the displacement of the endpoint is asymptotically of the order of the length of the path.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
