A146206 Number of paths of the simple random walk on condition that the median applied to the partial sums S_0=0, S_1,...,S_n, n odd (n=15 in this example), is equal to integer values k, -[n/2]<=k<=[n/2]. 4

COMMENTS

1) A146207=A146205+(0,A146206), see lemma 2 in Pfeifer (2010).

2) The median taken on partial sums of the simple random walk represents the market price in a simulation model wherein a single security among non-cooperating and asymetrically informed traders is traded (Pfeifer et al. 2009).

EXAMPLE

All possible different paths (sequences of partial sums) in case of n=3:

{0,-1,-2,-3}; median=-1.5

{0,-1,-2,-1}; median=-1

{0,-1,0,-1}; median=-0.5

{0,-1,0,1}; median=0

{0,1,0,-1}; median=0

{0,1,0,1}; median=0.5

{0,1,2,1}; median=1

{0,1,2,3}; median=1.5

sequence of integers in case of n=3: 1,2,1
