This moment path keeps the improvement of the idea and purposes of stochastic tactics as promised within the preface of a primary direction. We emphasize a cautious therapy of easy constructions in stochastic procedures in symbiosis with the research of average periods of stochastic approaches bobbing up from the organic, actual, and social sciences.

The most widely used example of these comparison results is the “canonical path theorem” (see [70, 24] for numerous examples). 17. Given a Markov chain P on state space Ω, and directed paths γxy between every pair of vertices x = y ∈ Ω, then λ≥ 1 a=b:P(a,b)=0 π(a)P(a, b) π(x)π(y)|γxy | max −1 . x=y:(a,b)∈γxy ˆ y) = π(y), π Proof. 14. Given f : Ω → R then EPˆ (f, f ) = 1 2 1 = 2 ˆ y) (f (x) − f (y))2 π(x)P(x, x,y∈Ω (f (x) − f (y))2 π(x)π(y) = Varπ (f ) . x,y∈Ω It follows that EP (f, f ) ≥ by deﬁnition of λ and A.

But then Ψ(A) = Q(A, Ω \ A℘A ) + (π(Ac ) − π(Ω \ A℘A )) ℘A ℘A = (π(Au ) − π(A)) du , 0 which completes the general case. 16 can be shown via Jensen’s inequality and this lemma, although the upper bounds require a careful setup. However, we will follow an alternative approach in which the extreme cases are constructed explicitly. The following analytic fact will be needed. 18. Given two non-increasing functions g, gˆ : [0, 1] → 1 1 t [0, 1] such that 0 g(u) du = 0 gˆ(u) du and ∀t ∈ [0, 1] : 0 g(u) du ≥ t ˆ(u) du, then 0g 1 0 1 f ◦ g(u) du ≤ f ◦ gˆ(u) du, 0 for every concave function f : [0, 1] → R.

Then E(Z 1Ac ) ≤ EZ/2, so E(Z1A ) ≥ EZ/2. Therefore, E (Z g(2Z)) ≥ E (Z1A g(EZ)) ≥ Let U = 2Z to get the result. EZ g(EZ). 2 284 Evolving Set Methods It is fairly easy to translate these to mixing time bounds. 6 it is appropriate to let f (z) = 1−z z for L bounds. 5) τ2 ( ) ≤ 2x(1 − x)(1 − C√z(1−z) (x)) π∗ 1 1+ 2 /4 dx 4π∗ x(1 − x)(1 − C√ (x)) z(1−z) 1+3π∗ 1 with the ﬁrst integral requiring x 1 − C√z(1−z) 1+x to be convex. 2 r By making the change of variables x = 1+r and applying a few pessimistic approximations one obtains a result more strongly resembling spectral proﬁle bounds: 1 1 log √ √ 1 − C z(1−z) π∗ 1/ 2 dr τ2 ( ) ≤ √ 2r(1 − C z(1−z) (r)) π∗ 4/ 2 dr √ r(1 − C (r)) 4π∗ z(1−z) For total variation distance related results are in terms of Cz(1−z) (r), and Cz log(1/z) (r) for relative entropy.
