Student’s T Random Walks

A few 2D random walks with magnitudes drawn from the Student’s T distribution. The distributions become progressively more fat-tailed further down the page. Graphs can zoom and pan. Zooming is really instructive with respect to the fat-tailed dynamics. Much of the micro detail is lost at the scale of the largest jumps — zooming in reveals just how large the rare jumps are relative to the ‘typical’ ones.
