BROWNIAN_MOTION_SIMULATION is a MATLAB library which simulates Brownian motion in an M-dimensional region.
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.
