Title:  On the favourite points of a random walk. (In English)
Source:  Mathematical structures, computational mathematics, mathematical modelling 2, Pap. dedic. L. Iliev 70th Anniv., 152-157 (1984).
Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 556.00005.]
Consider a symmetric random walk on Z. By fn the authors denote the maximal favourite point, i.e. the maximal element in the set of points where the particle stands most often. In this paper two estimates on fn are given.
