RANDOM WALKS AND EVENTUAL RETURNS
THE ANONYMOUS HEROES OF MATHEMATICS
Abstract. In this paper we will take a measure-theoretic approach to address
the problem of eventual returns in a random walk of several dimensions. We
begin by presenting the relevant

Compression Algorithms
There are many applications to being able to compress patterns or messages
into shorter segments without destroying certain information about the message. For
example, one may want to find a
