Main Document

STP Random Walk 2D Program 

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

The RandomWalk2D program simulates a random walk in two dimensions. The default number of walkers is 1000, and the probability of going right, left up or down at any step is the same.

RandomWalk2D 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 RandomWalk2D.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.
