Stochastic Trajectories of Beads in the Galton-Board
The Galton´s board is a periodic lattice with fixed nails at its nodes, spherical grains travel through them due to gravity. This system is commonly used to show the central limit theorem when a big quantity of grains fall down from the upper edge. We show the convenience of this system to present the main concepts of Markovian-stochastic motion of only one particle.
