BIM 107 Winter 2011 Problem set 1 (MATLAB Programming & Monte Carlo Simulation) 1. Write a MATLAB program that can calculate Use your program to evaluate the sum for N = 101. 2. (a) Use Monte Carlo Method (on MATLAB) to simulate the random walk of a single random walker on a one-dimensional integer lattice. This random walker is allowed only two moves, move to the any of the two nearest neighbor sites with P R = P L = 0.5 (P R probability for moving to the right, P L probability for moving to the left). Run each simulation for 1000 time steps all with infinitely large lattices (therefore

Unformatted text preview: there are no boundary conditions to worry about). Choose the initial (t = 0) coordinate to be zero for all runs. Show plots of some of the individual runs of the simulations. . (b) Repeat the exercise in part (a) with (i) P R = 0.7, P L = 0.3 and (ii) P R = 0.0, P L = 1.0. Note: Your MatLab code should be commented using ʻ % ʼ to explain to someone who has never seen your code what you are doing at each step. If you do not comment your code, I cannot tell what is going on, and you cannot get points. S N = 1 2 + 3 2 + 5 2 + ........... + N 2...
