Abstract: Counting random walks on regular lattices is a classical problem in
enumerative combinatorics. Confining these walks to different
geometries and changing the allowed steps can radically change the
nature of the solution. In this talk I will discuss the enumeration of
a family of random walks in simple symmetric and asymmetric wedges and
the resulting solutions.
