The RandomWalkSAW program simulates a self-avoiding random walk in two dimensions. The walker has an equal probability of going in any direction, but cannot return to a site that has already been visited. The default number of initial walkers is 100 and the total number of steps N = 1024.

RandomWalkSAW is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp RandomWalkSAW.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
