## Abstract

We study the territory covered by N Lévy flights by calculating the mean number of distinct sites, 〈[formula presented](n)〉, visited after n time steps on a d-dimensional, d⩾2, lattice. The Lévy flights are initially at the origin and each has a probability A[formula presented] to perform an ℓ-length jump in a randomly chosen direction at each time step. We obtain asymptotic results for different values of α. For d=2 and N→∞ we find 〈[formula presented](n)〉∝[formula presented][formula presented][formula presented], when α<2 and 〈[formula presented](n)〉∝[formula presented][formula presented], when α>2. For d=2 and n→∞ we find 〈[formula presented](n)〉∝Nn for α<2 and 〈[formula presented](n)〉∝Nn/ln n for α>2. The last limit corresponds to the result obtained by Larralde et al. [Phys. Rev. A 45, 7128 (1992)] for bounded jumps. We also present asymptotic results for 〈[formula presented](n)〉 on d⩾3 dimensional lattices.
