This explorable illustrates the properties of a class of random walks known as Lévy flights. To get the most out of this explorable, you may want to check out the explorable Albert & Carl Friedrich on ordinary random walks and diffusion first.
Lévy flights, unlike ordinary random walks, are superdiffusive and scale-free, their paths have a self-similar structure. They play a role in numerous systems in physics but also in ecology and other fields.
