Autor:  Erdös, Paul; Révész, P.
Title:  Problems and results on random walks. (In English)
Source:  Mathematical statistics and probability theory, Proc. 6th Pannonian Symp., Bad Tatzmannsdorf/Austria 1986, Vol. B, 59-65 (1987).
Review:  [For the entire collection see Zbl 625.00018.]
The authors consider the simple, symmetric random walk on the r-dimensional integer lattice. They present a number of unsolved problems together with the relevant known results; they do not give proofs but provide ample references. Together with the presented unsolved problems they indicate their beliefs on the solvability with existing methods. Among the problems covered are: favourite values, long head-runs, densities (local times) and for r > 2 path-covering problems.
