Gaussian processes in complex media: new vistas on anomalous diffusion
(Front. Phys., 2019-09)
Normal or Brownian diffusion is historically identified by the linear growth in time of the variance and by a Gaussian shape of the displacement distribution. Processes departing from the at least one of the above conditions ...
Finite-energy Lévy-type motion through heterogeneous ensemble of Brownian particles
(Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 2019-02-01)
Complex systems are known to display anomalous diffusion, whose signature is a space/time scaling $x \sim t^\delta$ with $\delta \neq 1/2$ in the probability density function (PDF). Anomalous diffusion can emerge jointly ...
Fractional kinetics in random/complex media
(Handbook of Fractional Calculus with Applications Volume 5 Applications in Physics, Part B, 2019)
In this chapter, we consider a randomly-scaled Gaussian process and discuss a number of applications to model fractional diffusion. Actually, this approach can be understood as a Gaussian diffusion in a medium characterized ...
Centre-of-mass like superposition of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes: A pathway to non-autonomous stochastic differential equations and to fractional diffusion
(Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, 2018-10-25)
We consider an ensemble of Ornstein–Uhlenbeck processes featuring a population of relaxation times and a population of noise amplitudes that characterize the heterogeneity of the ensemble. We show that the centre-of-mass ...
The M-Wright function as a generalization of the Gaussian density for fractional diffusion processes
(Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, 2013-12-31)
The leading role of a special function of the Wright-type, referred to as M-Wright or Mainardi function, within a parametric class of self-similar stochastic processes with stationary increments, is surveyed. This class ...
