Some results for directed lattice walkers in a strip

Authors: Yao-Ban Chan ; Anthony J. Guttmann

    Using a transfer matrix method, we present some results for directed lattice walkers in a horizontal strip of finite width. Some cases with two walkers in a small width are solved exactly, as are a couple of cases with vicious walkers in a small width; a conjecture is made for a case with three walkers. We also derive the general transfer matrix for two walkers. Lastly, we examine the dependence of the growth constant on the width and friendliness.
