Some problems (e.g. the generalized linear complementarity problem) can be mapped to a unique sink orientation (USO) of a grid such that the solution to the problem corresponds to the unique sink of the grid. We are interested in the expected number of vertices a randomized algorithm needs to evaluate until it finds the sink, where a vertex evaluation returns the orientation of all incident edges.

In this talk, the focus will be on small grid-USOs and mainly on 2xn-grids, which we call "n-ladders". The hope is that the analysis of algorithms on ladders will yield new ideas for the general grid case.
