Coding Challenge #53: Random Walker with Vectors and Lévy Flight



In this Coding Challenge, I continue the discussion on Random Walkers. I implement a random walker using vectors in p5.js, which allows me to vary the distance of each step size. I also implement a “Lévy Flight”, named after French Mathematician Paul Lévy.

This video is part of my Spring 2017 course Nature of Code at Tisch NYU (http://itp.nyu.edu).
