Let's consider a random walk on a fixed lattice with step size 1 in 1 dimensions. In variation to the broadly discussed basic case, with a probability p the next step will be in the opposite direction of the previous step. The direction of the first step is also chosen randomly with same probability p.
In my opinion the result should be identical to an unbiased random walk regardless of p, however experiments in Excel seem to suggest that there is a difference (path looks more jagged; but this could be an artifact of the PRNG used). If there really is a difference I would like to know how to calculate the expected distance from origin after n steps and passing times.
Edit: I had a bug in my formula, now p is changing the look of the graph. With p = 0.5 you have an unbiased random walk, with p = 1 it is completely predictable. Thus my question about traveled distance and passing times / passing probabilities has some eligibility.
