Cutpoints of non-homogeneous random walks

Lo, Chak Hei and Menshikov, Mikhail V. and Wade, Andrew R. (2022) 'Cutpoints of non-homogeneous random walks.', ALEA - Latin American Journal of Probability and Mathematical Statistics, 19 . pp. 493-510.


We give conditions under which near-critical stochastic processes on the half-line have infinitely many or finitely many cutpoints, generalizing existing results on nearest-neighbour random walks to adapted processes with bounded increments satisfying appropriate conditional increment moments conditions. We apply one of these results to deduce that a class of transient zero-drift Markov chains in R d , d ≥ 2, possess infinitely many separating annuli, generalizing previous results on spatially homogeneous random walks.
