    • Kac’s walk on n-sphere mixes in n log n steps 

      Pillai, Natesh S; Smith, Aaron (2017)
      Determining the mixing time of Kac's random walk on the sphere Sn−1 is a long-standing open problem. We show that the total variation mixing time of Kac's walk on Sn−1 is between 12nlog(n) and 200nlog(n). Our bound is thus ...
