Hi Roberto,

This may be a little contrived but it is a simple way to do what you want:

data = Table[NestList[# + 0.01*Sign[Random[Integer,{-1,4}]]&,5,1000];

This will give the results in the proportions you asked for....regards, RF

Hi there,

I need help on how the expression:


could be modified in order to get -1 with probability 1/6, 0 with p 4/6 
1 with p 1/6 instead of 1/3,1/3,1/3

Thanks a lot
