 Apr2 awarded Self-Learner Apr2 revised Doubt on Tail events and Kolmogorov Zero-One Law Added an update as to the other source of confusion. Apr1 answered Doubt on Tail events and Kolmogorov Zero-One Law Apr1 comment Doubt on Tail events and Kolmogorov Zero-One Law Thanks Did. If you write that as an answer, I'll be able to credit you. Apr1 asked Doubt on Tail events and Kolmogorov Zero-One Law Mar21 answered Something about Markov chains Mar18 accepted Expected time to absorption Mar17 comment Expected time to absorption I see. Very clever of you to construct a new DTMC and look at that. But the trick of $T_{\{1 \to (0,N)\}} = T_{\{(0,N) \to (0,N)\}}- T_{\{(0,N) \to 1\}}$ was key. Thanks for helping. Mar17 comment Expected time to absorption @Brent: It means that the states $\{1,2,...,N-1\}$ are transient and they form a communicating class. Let me know if these terms are unfamiliar since they are standard in Markov chains.

Feb26 awarded Organizer Feb24 revised Prove that these integrals are equal. How to complete the proof? added 2 characters in body Feb15 comment Is this set open or closed Isn't the set same as $(-1,1)$? Feb5 comment Does $E[X] < \infty$ imply $X<\infty$ almost surely @Hardy: Thanks for correcting it. Feb5 answered Does $E[X] < \infty$ imply $X<\infty$ almost surely Jan12 answered (Dis)prove that $\sup(A \cap B) = \min\{\sup A, \sup B\}$ Dec18 comment Is linear function convex or concave? Exactly my point. To prove convexity, you simply pick the coefficients as mentioned above. Convexity requires that coefficints be in $[0,1]$. Linearity covers this and far more!! That too with equality. Dec11 awarded Caucus Dec2 answered easy question about inequality
