Title: The Self-Avoiding Random Walk

Description: This site provides the description and instructions for as well as the link to "The Self-Avoiding Random Walk" applet. In the SAW applet, random walks start on a square lattice and then are discarded as soon as they self-intersect. If a random walk survives after N steps, we compute the square of the distance from the origin, sum it up, and divide by the number of survivals. This variable is plotted on the vertical axis of the graph, which is plotted to the right of the field where random walks travel.
