Representing base 4 numbers as "random walks"

Asked by Tyler Kastner on 20 Mar 2018
Latest activity Answered by Roger Stafford on 20 Mar 2018
How would I go about creating a code that would convert a base 4 number into a "random walk"? What I mean by this is in base 4, let 0 be a step downwards, 1 be a step to the left, 2 a step up, and 3 a step to the right. Any tips for creating a code that when I put in a number will produce this walk? Thank you.

See attached random walk demos. I think one of them goes up, down, left, and right rather than in random directions. Adapt as needed.

The Matlab function 'dec2base' can be used to covert integers to character strings involving the characters '0', '1', '2', and '3'. From there to your 'walk' should be easy.
