Author:David Sumner; University of South Carolina
Description: A Javascript simulation of a particle moving along a straight line with absorbing states at either end. Modifiable variables: length of the line, starting position of the particle, number of trials. The theoretical expected length of a walk with these parameters is provided, along with the actual average number of steps taken over all the walks performed. Until you change the starting position or path length, the program retains the average length of a walk.
