Note: MG means Martingale , and S T means Stopping Time . A1: Consider a MG ~ Y with pointwise bounds | Y | 6 7 and n : | Y n +1- Y n | 6 7 . 1 : Suppose that is a S T with E ( ) < . Prove that Y is integrable and E ( Y ) = E ( Y ). A2: Consider an independent random-walk on the integers, where each step-probability depends on both position and time. A 3-spread D () is a mean-zero random vari- able with support on J := [ 3 .. 3 ] . That is, X j J P ( D = j ) = 1 and 2 : E ( D ) note === X j J j P ( D = j ) = 0 . 3 : For each time n Z + and each position p Z , suppose that we have a 3-spread D n,p , and all these random variables are mutually independent. Then our random-walk is ~ S , where S 0 ( we start at the origin ) and S n +1 := S n + D n +1 , S n ....
