# Levy flights

**Levy flight** is a method of mathematically simulating

Brownian motion and other natural processes which appear

random but which have tendencies which are considered

fractal rather than purely random. This method of

simulation is considered more descriptive of certain classes of phenomenon and is part of a class of

Markov processes.

This method of simulation stems heavily from the mathematics related to chaos theory and is useful in stochastic measurement and simulations for random or pseudo-random natural phenomenon. Examples include earthquake data analysis, stock analysis, cryptography, signals analysis as well as many applications in astronomy and biology.
