A Trio Take the Levy Walk
The old saying about “strange bedfellows” was updated by a biology report that T cells and predatory animals share an unusual hunting pattern known as the Lévy walk.
Then I learned that corporate bond prices do the same, and explained these strange “walking” companions in “T Cells, Predators and Finances all Walk the Levy Walk“.
What is a Lévy Walk?
As my Decoded Science article explains in more detail, a “Lévy walk” is a pattern of taking many short random steps in one location, then one giant leap to another location where short steps are taken again. It’s based on a mathematical probability distribution.
It’s a pattern used by hunters, from sharks to T Lymphocyte cells and even by bond traders looking for a profit.
My article provides links to the reference material, and explains more about the Lévy probability distribution, T cells, the person behind the math, and more.
Promoting this Lévy Walk Article
As always, I also mentioned this article in my Xanga blog (”3 Strangers Who Walk the Levy Walk”). My Blog of Writing includes, not one but two, related no-obligation writing tips in “Preview of the Levy Random Walk“.
