Ministry of Stochastic Walks

Every time someone writes a post about random walks, I feel somewhat motivated to write a little program to generate a few (with adjustable parameters, of course). Anyway, Tamino’s recent discussion motivated me enough to write one.

You can see, for example, the difference between a proper random walk:
Random walk
And a walk that’s been bounded on one side:
Bounded stochastic walk

The code is written in .NET (C#) and licensed under the GPL. The binaries are built for the .NET Framework 2.0, so you’ll need that.
