Description: A Java simulation of statistics and probability. From where he stands, one step toward the cliff would send poor Homer Simpson over the edge. He takes random steps, either toward or away from the cliff. At any step his probability of taking a step away is 2/3, of a step toward the cliff 1/3. What is his chance of escaping?
