Url: http://polymer.bu.edu/java/java/1drw/RandWalk1D.html
Creator: McGath, Gary
Trunfio, Paul
Publisher: Boston University. Center for Polymer Studies
Description: Created by authors Gary McGath and Paul Trunfio of Boston University's Center for Polymer Studies, this is the description and instructions for the One-Dimensional Random Walk applet. This Applet relates random coin-flipping to random motion. It strives to show that randomness (coin-flipping) leads to some sort of predictable outcome (the bell-shaped curve).
