Answer to TYI 37: Arithmetic Progressions in 3D Brownian Motion

Consider a Brownian motion in three dimensional space. We asked (TYI 37) What is the largest number of points on the path described by the motion which form an arithmetic progression? (Namely, , so that all are equal.) Here is … Continue reading
