Line crossing problem for biased monotonic random walks in the planeSep 20 2007In this paper, we study the problem of finding the probability that the two-dimensional (biased) monotonic random walk crosses the line $y=\alpha x+d$, where $\alpha,d \geq 0$. A $\beta$-biased monotonic random walk moves from $(a,b)$ to $(a+1,b)$ or ... More
Semigroups of matrices with dense orbitsMay 08 2009Apr 09 2010We give examples of $n \times n$ matrices $A$ and $B$ over the filed $\mathbb{K}=\mathbb{R}$ or $\mathbb{C}$ such that for almost every column vector $x \in \mathbb{K}^n$, the orbit of $x$ under the action of the semigroup generated by $A$ and $B$ is ...

Tree property at successor of a singular limit of measurable cardinalsJan 16 2016Sep 26 2016Assume $\lambda$ is a singular limit of $\eta$ supercompact cardinals, where $\eta \leq \lambda$ is a limit ordinal. We present two forcing methods for making $\lambda^+$ the successor of the limit of the first $\eta$ measurable cardinals while the tree ... More
Lagrangian analysis of the laminar flat plate boundary layerApr 05 2016Sep 17 2016The flow properties at the leading edge of a flat plate represent a singularity to the Blasius laminar boundary layer equations, by applying the Lagrangian approach the leading edge velocity profiles of the laminar boundary layer over a flat plate are ...
