      Gupta, Himanshu
      This thesis is divided into four chapters. In Chapter 1, we give some basic definitions and results that we need throughout the thesis. In Chapter 2, we describe the pn0;n1q-Toom model and prove some known results about ...
    • Total variation cutoff for random walks on some finite groups
