The MWright function as a generalization of the Gaussian density for fractional diffusion processes
(Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, 20131231)The leading role of a special function of the Wrighttype, referred to as MWright or Mainardi function, within a parametric class of selfsimilar stochastic processes with stationary increments, is surveyed. This class ... 
Twoparticle anomalous diffusion: Probability density functions and selfsimilar stochastic processes
(Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 20131231)Twoparticle dispersion is investigated in the context of anomalous diffusion. Two different modeling approaches related to time subordination are considered and unified in the framework of selfsimilar stochastic processes. ... 
Fractional relaxation with timevarying coefficient
(Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, 20141231)From the point of view of the general theory of the hyperBessel operators, we consider a particular operator that is suitable to generalize the standard process of relaxation by taking into account both memory effects of ... 
Front propagation in anomalous diffusive media governed by timefractional diffusion
(Journal of Computational Physics, 20141231)In this paper, a multidimensional model is proposed to study the propagation of random fronts in media in which anomalous diffusion takes place. The front position is obtained as the weighted mean of fronts calculated by ... 
Selfsimilar stochastic models with stationary increments for symmetric spacetime fractional diffusion
(MESA 2014  10th IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications, Conference Proceedings, 20141231)An approach to develop stochastic models for studying anomalous diffusion is proposed. In particular, in this approach the stochastic particle trajectory is based on the fractional Brownian motion but, for any realization, ... 
Short note on the emergence of fractional kinetics
(Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications, 20141231)In the present Short Note an idea is proposed to explain the emergence and the observation of processes in complex media that are driven by fractional nonMarkovian master equations. Particle trajectories are assumed to ... 
Modelling wildland fire propagation by tracking random fronts
(Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, 20141231)Abstract. Wildland fire propagation is studied in the liter ature by two alternative approaches, namely the reaction– diffusion equation and the levelset method. These two ap proaches are considered alternatives to each ... 
Velocity and energy distributions in microcanonical ensembles of hard spheres
(Physical Review E  Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics, 20151231)In a microcanonical ensemble (constant NVE, hard reflecting walls) and in a molecular dynamics ensemble (constant NVEPG, periodic boundary conditions) with a number N of smooth elastic hard spheres in a ddimensional volume ... 
A renewal model for the emergence of anomalous solute crowding in liposomes
(BMC Systems Biology, 20151231)A fundamental evolutionary step in the onset of living cells is thought to be the spontaneous formation of lipid vesicles (liposomes) in the prebiotic mixture. Even though it is well known that hydrophobic forces drive ... 
Scaling law of diffusivity generated by a noisy telegraph signal with fractal intermittency
(Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, 20151231)In many complex systems the nonlinear cooperative dynamics determine the emergence of selforganized, metastable, structures that are associated with a birthdeath process of cooperation. This is found to be described by ...

Fractional kinetics emerging from ergodicity breaking in random media
(Physical Review E, 2016)We present a modelling approach for diffusion in a complex medium characterized by a random lengthscale. The resulting stochastic process shows subdiffusion with a behavior in qualitative agreement with single particle ... 
Turbulence and firespotting effects into wildland fire simulators
(Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, 20160101)This paper presents a mathematical approach to model the effects and the role of phenomena with random nature such as turbulence and firespotting into the existing wildfire simulators. The formulation proposes that the ... 
Modelling and simulation of wildland fire in the framework of the level set method
(Ricerche di Matematica, 20160101)Among the modelling approaches that have been proposed for the simulation of wildfire propagation, two have gained considerable attention in recent years: the one based on a reactiondiffusion equation, and the one based ... 
The challenge of brain complexity: A brief discussion about a fractal intermittencybased approach
(PhyCS 2016  Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems, 20161030)In the last years, the complexity paradigm is gaining momentum in many research fields where large multidimensional datasets are made available by the advancements in instrumental technology. A complex system is a ... 
DarrieusLandau instabilities in the framework of the Gequation
(Digital proceedings of the 8th European Combustion Meeting, 1821 April 2017, Dubrovnik, Croatia, 201704)We consider a model formulation of the flame front propagation in turbulent premixed combustion based on stochastic fluctuations imposed to the mean flame position. In particular, the mean flame motion is described by ... 
Numerical valuation of twoasset options under jump diffusion models using GaussHermite quadrature
