BROWNIAN_MOTION_SIMULATION
Simulation of Brownian Motion in M Dimensions


BROWNIAN_MOTION_SIMULATION is a C library which simulates Brownian motion in an M-dimensional region, creating graphics files for processing by gnuplot.

Brownian motion is a physical phenomenon which can be observed, for instance, when a small particle is immersed in a liquid. The particle will move as though under the influence of random forces of varying direction and magnitude.

There is a mathematical idealization of this motion, and from there a computational discretization that allows us to simulate the successive positions of a particle undergoing Brownian motion.
