RHP’s, one with jump on Σ and the other with jump on the discrete set.
Riemann-Hilbert problems for last passage percolation
These jumps are more pronounced for moments Gn (τ ) of increasing order n because the contribution of the rare events is enhanced and the average is determined by a few conﬁgurations that can include such jumps.
Quenched bond dilution in two-dimensional Potts models
From then on when an active particle jumps on a sleeping particle, the latter wakes up and starts jumping independently, also performing a SRW.
The shape theorem for the frog model with random initial configuration
Mirza et al. induced various social networks by applying various ‘jump’ speciﬁcations of how individuals in the afﬁliation network representatio n of R are to be connected in the resulting social network graph Gs (Fig. 4b). A jump is a function J : R 7→ S , where S ⊆ P × P .

The line with the smaller jump in magnetization is called the “lateral line” and the remaining line with the large jump in magnetization is continuation of the ﬁrst-order line.
Ground state numerical study of the three-dimensional random field Ising model
Hence a jump of size j is N/c times more likely than a jump of size j + 1.
Degrees of transience and recurrence and hierarchical random walks
The left end G of the ﬁrst marked interval is G = τL− = τ u L , and the subordinator τ u summing unmarked jumps of τ is independent of L, the local time of the ﬁrst marked jump.

The process NA is increasing, c`adl`ag and has jumps of size 1 because by construction the N (i) A do not jump at the same time almost surely.
Exchangeable Fragmentation-Coalescence processes and their equilibrium measures
A p-simple random walk on Z is a continuous time simple random walk that makes jumps at unit rate, and when it makes a jump from some site it jumps to the right neighbour with probability p and to the left neighbour with probability 1 − p.
Balls-in-boxes duality for coalescing random walks and coalescing Brownian motions
Because of the geometric disorder and the possibility of jumps between any of the random points, the application of this general theorem to our model is technically considerably more involved than in the case of the lattice model with jumps to nearest neighboors studied in [DFGW, Section 4].
