We consider a random walk process, introduced by Orenshtein and Shinkar [Tal Orenshtein and Igor Shinkar, 2014], which prefers to visit previously unvisited edges, on the random r-regular graph G_r for any odd r >= 3. We show that this random walk process has asymptotic vertex and edge cover times 1/(r-2)n log n and r/(2(r-2))n log n, respectively, generalizing the result from [Cooper et al., to appear] from r = 3 to any larger odd r. This completes the study of the vertex cover time for fixed r >= 3, with [Petra Berenbrink et al., 2015] having previously shown that G_r has vertex cover time asymptotic to rn/2 when r >= 4 is even.

We investigate the number of permutations that occur in random node labellings of trees. This is a generalisation of the number of subpermutations occuring in a random permutation. It also generalises some recent results on the number of inversions in randomly labelled trees [Cai et al., 2017]. We consider complete binary trees as well as random split trees a large class of random trees of logarithmic height introduced by Devroye [Devroye, 1998]. Split trees consist of nodes (bags) which can contain balls and are generated by a random trickle down process of balls through the nodes.
For complete binary trees we show that asymptotically the cumulants of the number of occurrences of a fixed permutation in the random node labelling have explicit formulas. Our other main theorem is to show that for a random split tree with high probability the cumulants of the number of occurrences are asymptotically an explicit parameter of the split tree. For the proof of the second theorem we show some results on the number of embeddings of digraphs into split trees which may be of independent interest.

We study I(T), the number of inversions in a tree T with its vertices labeled uniformly at random. We first show that the cumulants of I(T) have explicit formulas. Then we consider X_n, the normalized version of I(T_n), for a sequence of trees T_n. For fixed T_n's, we prove a sufficient condition for X_n to converge in distribution. For T_n being split trees [Devroye, 1999], we show that X_n converges to the unique solution of a distributional equation. Finally, when T_n's are conditional Galton-Watson trees, we show that X_n converges to a random variable defined in terms of Brownian excursions. Our results generalize and extend previous work by Panholzer and Seitz [Panholzer and Seitz, 2012].

We study a random walk that prefers to use unvisited edges in the context of random cubic graphs, i.e., graphs chosen uniformly at random from the set of 3-regular graphs. We establish asymptotically correct estimates for the vertex and edge cover times, these being n log n and 3/2 n log n respectively.
