An important tool in probability theory and its applications, the coupling method is primarily used in estimates of total variation distances. In the past two decades the coupling method has developed as an essential tool in probability theory. Very successful in the study of Markov and renewal. O’Connell, Neil.

We continue this coupling until A and B have the same horizontal coordinate, or in other words are on the vertical line 5, y. More specifically, for ln fixed kthe probability that the first coin produces at least k heads should be less than the probability that the second coin ghe at least k heads.

On every step, if A walks up, so does Bif A moves lechures the left, so does Betc. Apart from covering all classical models where couplings are known to work beautifully, it also clarifies the intimate connection to regeneration and Harris chains.

Lyapunov Exponents of Linear Cocycles. The method also works well in establishing inequalities, and it has proven highly successful in the study of Markov and renewal process asymptotics.


We’ll publish them on our site once we’ve reviewed them. Then the sequence of Y i has exactly the probability distribution of tosses made with the second coin.
