Extreme values of the stationary distribution of random walks on directed graphs

We examine the stationary distribution of random walks on directed graphs. In particular, we focus on the principal ratio, which is the ratio of maximum to minimum values of vertices in the stationary distribution. We give an upper bound for this …

Graphs with Many Strong Orientations

We establish mild conditions under which a possibly irregular, sparse graph $G$ has “many” strong orientations. Given a graph $G$ on $n$ vertices, orient each edge in either direction with probability $1/2$ independently. We show that if $G$ …
