Optimal Surviving Strategy for the “Up the River” ProblemSeminar: Probability Seminar  March 1  3:104 p.m.  1011 Evans Hall Wenpin Tang, U.C. Berkeley The "Up the River" problem was formulated by Aldous (2002), where a unit drift is distributed among a finite collection of Brownian particles on R+, which are annihilated once they reach the origin. Starting K particles at x = 1, we prove Aldous’ conjecture that the pushthelaggard strategy of distributing the drift asymptotically (as K → ∞) maximizes the total number of surviving particles, with approximately √ 4 π K1/2 surviving particles. The pushthelaggard strategy is closely related to Atlas model, developed by Fernholz, Karatzas, . . .The hydrodynamic limit of the particle density satisfies a twophase PDE with a moving boundary.
