Summer research project 2023


Study plan

  1. Learn Markov chains starting with this resource by Daryl DeFord (Week 1-2)
  2. Implement simple Markov chains and some analysis with sagemath (Weeks 1-2)
  3. Play with the sagemath code that enumerates all partitions of a 4x4 grid into 4 connected parts
  4. Read the chapter “Random Walks” from Political Geometry and think about how we might implement the flip chain from Section 3.3 of that chapter.
