Given a polytope with directed edges, a *directed random walk* on the polytope moves from vertex to vertex, always moving along one of the outgoing edges chosen uniformly at random. (You can just think of the Random-Edge algorithm for linear programming.)

Let $d$ denote the dimension and $n$ the number of facets. The number $r = n-d$ is called the corank of the polytope. We show that a directed random walk may take $\Omega(\log^r n)$ steps when $r$ is fixed and the edges are directed according to a linear function.
