Measuring Bias in Cyclic Random Walks
We define the notion of the bias of a Bernoulli random variable and demonstrate its relationship to the property that the mod-2 sum of independent variables converges to a fair coin-toss. We then explore generalizations of these ideas to random walks on a finite cyclic group.
