A077483 Probability P(n) of the occurrence of a 2D self-trapping walk of length n: Numerator. 5

%N Probability P(n) of the occurrence of a 2D self-trapping walk of length n: Numerator.

%C A comparison of the exact probabilities with simulation results obtained for 1.2*10^10 random walks is given under "Results of simulation, comparison with exact probabilities" in the first link. The behavior of P(n) for larger values of n is illustrated in "Probability density for the number of steps before trapping occurs" at the same location. P(n) has a maximum for n=31 (P(31)~=1/85.01) and drops exponentially for large n (P(800)~=1/10^9). The average walk length determined by the numerical simulation is sum n=7..infinity (n*P(n))=70.7598+-0.001

%F P(n) = a077483(n) / ( 3^(n-1) * 2^a077484(n) )

%e A077483(10)=173 and A077484(10)=1 because there are 4 different probabilities for the 50 (=2*A077482(10)) walks: 4 walks with probability p1=1/6561, 14 walks with p2=1/8748, 22 walks with p3=1/13122, 10 walks with p4=1/19683. The sum of all probabilities is P(10) = 4*p1+14*p2+22*p3+10*p4 = (12*4+9*14+6*22+4*10)/78732 = 346/78732 = 173 / (3^9 * 2^1)
