Discrete harmonic functions in the three-quarter plane
Sprache des Titels:
In this article we are interested in finding positive discrete harmonic functions with Dirichlet conditions in three quadrants. Whereas planar lattice (random) walks in the quadrant have been well studied, the case of walks avoiding a quadrant has been developed lately. We extend the method in the quarter plane -- resolution of a functional equation via boundary value problem using a conformal mapping -- to the three-quarter plane applying the strategy of splitting the domain into two symmetric convex cones. We obtain a simple explicit expression for the algebraic generating function of harmonic functions associated to random walks avoiding a quadrant.
