Some applications of the method of the characteristic event Main, Robert Frazee


A method of integrating over difficult sets in Eⁿ by replacing the characteristic function of the set with a discontinuous integral has been used by Markov, Chandrasekhar, Melzak, and others. This thesis employs this method in some problems arising from random walks. A discussion of the difficulties encountered and suggestions for further study are included.
