Random walks on trees and the law of iterated logarithm
AbstractIn this paper we give an alternative proof for the main result of Konsowa and Mitro (J. Theor. Probab. 4 (3) (1991) 535), Konsowa and Mitro found that the simple random walk (SRW) on infinite trees is transient or recurrent. In part of their work, they considered the case of an -tree in which all the vertices of the same distance n from the root have the same degree which is 3 with probability qn and 2 with probability 1-qn. They proved that the SRW is transient if liminf nqn>1/log 2 and recurrent if limsup nqn
