Random Walk - Variants of Random Walks

Variants of Random Walks

A number of types of stochastic processes have been considered that are similar to the pure random walks but where the simple structure is allowed to be more generalized. The pure structure can be characterized by the steps being being defined by independent and identically distributed random variables.

Variants of Random Walks - Heterogeneous Random Walks in One Dimension
... Heterogeneous random walks in one dimension can have either discrete time or continuous time ... Heterogeneous random walks in 1D have jump probabilities that depend on the location in the system, and/or different jumping time (JT) probability density functions (PDFs) that depend on the location in the ... system in a particular direction), the average distance of the random walker from its starting position is linear with time ...

    Man always made, and still makes, grotesque blunders in selecting and measuring forces, taken at random from the heap, but he never made a mistake in the value he set on the whole, which he symbolized as unity and worshipped as God. To this day, his attitude towards it has never changed, though science can no longer give to force a name.
