Krawtchouk polynomials and finite probability theory

Abstract : Some general remarks on random walks and martingales for finite probability distributions are presented. Orthogonal systems for the multinomial distribution arise. In particular, a class of generalized Krawtchouk polynomials is determined by a random walk generated by roots of unity. Relations with hypergeometric functions and some limit theorems are discussed.
