Abstract

A modification of Chung and Fuchs’ (Mem. Amer. Math. Soc., 6 (1951), pp. 1-12) recurrence theorem for random walks leads to an analogous result for a different discrete parameter Markov process. This latter process is applicable to an analysis of price stabilization programs involving purchases and sales from a buffer stock.
