    Random walks on CAT(0) cubical complexes



    Let X be a CAT(0) cubical complex and G be a group acting on X. Pick independent random variables gi in G, with the same law. The associated random walk is then the product Zn = g1g2 ... gn. Choosing some origin o in X, we study the asymptotic behavior of the sequence (Zn o). More precisely, we prove that (almost surely) d(Zn o,o) is equivalent to nA for some A>0, and that (Zn o) converges to a point in the (suitably defined) boundary  of X. We also prove a Central Limit Theorem : the quotient d(Zno,o)-nA/\sqrt n converges (in law) to a non-degenerate Gaussian law. This is a joint work with Talia Fernós and Frédéric Mathéus.
