Walking randomly for 100 years View Presentation
Random walks on lattices and graphs have been studied for more than a 100 years by mathematicians, statisticians and others. We elucidate the formal mathematical structure of the model and indicate some of the interesting results in this area. We also discuss how this theory helps us to understand the geometry of such complex networks as the World Wide Web and the small world network.
