Abstract:

The main result is to demonstrate that every recurrent random walk with the origin a reflecting barrier has the strong ratio limit property. This result is then used to obtain information about the solutions to the Wiener Hopf Equation and to study the first passage times to a half line for random walks on the entire line. Author
