    The rate constant for diffusion-controlled reactions between asymmetric reactants described by the simple model of Solc and Stockmayer under the influence of Coulomb-type interaction is considered. Using the method of dual series relations, we calculate the rate constant with a high accuracy and...

    A particle diffusing in a tube with dead ends, from time to time enters a dead end, spends some time in the dead end, and then comes back to the tube. As a result, the particle spends in the tube only a part of the entire observation time that leads to slowdown of its diffusion along the tube....

    The diffusion of a suspended Brownian particle along a sinusoidally corrugated narrow channel is investigated to assess the validity of two competing analytical schemes, both based on effective one-dimensional kinetic equations, one continuous (entropic channel scheme) and the other discrete...

    Axial diffusion in a two-dimensional channel of smoothly varying geometry can be approximately described as one-dimensional diffusion in the entropy potential with position-dependent effective diffusivity by means of the modified Fick-Jacobs equation. In this paper, Brownian dynamics simulations...

    While the slow dynamics in glassy liquids are known to be accompanied by collective motions undetectable with static structure factor and requiring four-point space-time correlations for their detection, it is usually difficult to calculate such correlations analytically. In the present study, a...

    Density functional theory is a particular case of a general theory of conjugate variables that serves as the basis of the projection operator technique. By using this technique we derive a general dynamical version of density functional theory which involves a generalized diffusion tensor. The...

  • Crossing Probabilities for Diffusion Processes with Piecewise Continuous Boundaries. Wang, Liqun; P�tzelberger, Klaus // Methodology & Computing in Applied Probability;Mar2007, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p21 

    We propose an approach to compute the boundary crossing probabilities for a class of diffusion processes which can be expressed as piecewise monotone (not necessarily one-to-one) functionals of a standard Brownian motion. This class includes many interesting processes in real applications, e.g.,...

    We obtain a representation of Feller's branching diffusion with logistic growth in terms of the local times of a reflected Brownian motion H with a drift that is affine linear in the local time accumulated by H at its current level. As in the classical Ray-Knight representation, the excursions...
