The chapter presents a unified approach to a study of ballistic phase for a large family of self-interacting random walks with a drift and self-interacting polymers with an external stretching force. The approach is based on a recent version of the Ornstein–Zernike theory. It leads to local limit results for various observables (e.g. displacement of the end-point or number of hits of a fixed finite pattern) on paths of n-step walks (polymers) on all possible deviation scales from CLT to LD. The class of models, which display ballistic phase in the ‘universality class’ discussed in the chapter, includes self-avoiding walks, Domb–Joyce model, random walks in an annealed random potential, reinforced polymers, and weakly reinforced random walks.

Keywords:   ballistic phase, Ornstein–Zernike theory, self-avoiding walks, self-interacting polymers
