- Bidimensional Random Walks [
*Marches Aléatoires Bidimensionnelles*]:
When displaying the gravity center of a set of particles, its trajectory can hide one or
more of these particles.
In this case, the written number of particles seems to be wrong: but it is not!
- Tridimensional Random Walks [
*Marches Aléatoires Tridimensionnelles*]: - Bidimensional Billiards [
*Billards Bidimensionnels*]:

or more of these particles.
