Chutes and Ladders in D3
Visualization of a Markov chain simulation
This is my for-fun implementation of Nick Berry's simulations of Chutes and Ladders to explain the Monte Carlo and Markov chain methods.
I implemented the Monte Carlo and Markov chain models in Python here. This D3.js based project is to visualize the Markov chain simulation, which gives you the probability for being on a given square after a given number of moves.
This visualization depends on D3.js, which is linked in the code itself. It requires a "modern" web browser, meaning your best bet is to try Chrome/Chromium, Firefox, Safari, or a related browser (as of 2013).
You can see a working version here.
