Random Walk - Lattice Random Walk

Lattice Random Walk

A popular random walk model is that of a random walk on a regular lattice, where at each step the location jumps to another site according to some probability distribution. In a simple random walk, the location can only jump to neighboring sites of the lattice. In simple symmetric random walk on a locally finite lattice, the probabilities of the location jumping to each one of its immediate neighbours are the same. The best studied example is of random walk on the d-dimensional integer lattice (sometimes called the hypercubic lattice) .

Famous quotes containing the words walk and/or random:

    The law is not a “light” for you or any man to see by; the law is not an instrument of any kind. The law is a causeway upon which so long as he keeps to it a citizen may walk safely.
    Robert Bolt (1924–1995)

    Novels as dull as dishwater, with the grease of random sentiments floating on top.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)
