Название: Random walks on lattices. IV. Continuous-time walks and influence of absorbing boundaries
Авторы: Elliott W. Montroll, Harvey Scher
The general study of random walks on a lattice is developed further with emphasis on continuous-time walks with an asymmetric bias. Continuous time walks are characterized by random pauses between jumps, with a common pausing time distribution(t). An analytic solution in the form of an inverse Laplace transform for P(l, t), the probability of a walker being atl at timet if it started atl o att=0, is obtained in the presence of completely absorbing boundaries. Numerical results for P(l, t) are presented for characteristically different (t), including one which leads to a non-Gaussian behavior for P(l, t) even for larget. Asymptotic results are obtained for the number of surviving walkers and the mean l showing the effect of the absorption at the boundary.
