Abstract:
Consider random conductances that allow long range jumps. In particular we consider conductances Cxy=wxy|x-y|-d-α for distinct x,y ∈ Zd and 0<α<2, where {wxy=wyx: x,y ∈ Zd} are positive independent random variables with mean 1. We prove that under some moment conditions for w, suitably rescaled Markov chains among the random conductances converge to a rotationally symmetric α-stable process almost surely w.r.t. the randomness of the environments. The proof is a combination of analytic and probabilistic methods based on the recently established de Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for processes with long range jumps. This is a joint work with Xin Chen (Shanghai) and Jian Wang (Fuzhou).
