title
Disparity-persistence and the multistep friendship paradox
author
Zhang, Chi
abstract
In this thesis, we consider the friendship paradox in the context of random walks and paths. Among our results, we give an equality connecting long-range degree correlation, degree variability, and the degree-wise effect of additional steps for a random walk on a graph. Random paths are also considered, as well as applications to acquaintance sampling in the context of core-periphery structure.
