The volume and time comparison principle and transition probability estimates for random walks

András Telcs


This paper presents necessary and sufficient conditions for on- and off-diagonal transition probability estimates for random walks on weighted graphs. On the integer lattice and on may fractal type graphs both the volume of a ball and the mean exit time from a ball are independent of the center, uniform in space. Here the upper estimate is given without such restriction and two-sided estimate is given if the mean exit time is independent of the center but the volume is not.
