Main Document

STP Random Walk 1D Continuous Program 

written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox

The RandomWalk1DContinuous program simulates a random walk in one dimension for steps of any length between 0 and 1. The default number of steps is N = 16 and the probability p of going to the right for a single step is 0.5.

RandomWalk1DContinuous 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 RandomWalk1DContinuous.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.
