Random walk is a process, a model or a rule to generate path sequence of random motion. Why do we study Random Walk? Study of random walk is interesting because many natural phenomena can be modeled as random walk. Random walk has been widely applied in theoretical physics and investment theory of stock market, and used to generate fractal image and so on.
