Title:
Negatively Reinforced Urn Models.

Abstract of Talk

We consider urn models with finitely many colors, where the
selection probability is proportional to the total number of balls of other
colors, we call this Linear De-preferential urn processes. We provide
Strong Law of Large Number and the Central Limit Theorem for this
scheme. In particular, we obtain uniform limit, if and only if, uniform
distribution is the unique stationary distribution of the underline
Markov chain.
