We study the transport process of interacting Brownian particles in a tube of varying cross section. To describe this process we introduce a modified Fick-Jacobs equation, considering particles that interact through a hard-core potential. We were able to solve the equation with numerical methods for the case of symmetric and asymmetric cavities. We focused… (More)
We derive and study a theoretical description for single-file diffusion, i.e., diffusion in a one-dimensional lattice of particles with hard core interaction. It is well known that for this system a tagged particle has anomalous diffusion for long times. The novelty of the present approach is that it allows for the derivation of correlations between a… (More)
The quantum diffusion of a particle in an initially localized state on a cyclic lattice with N sites is studied. Diffusion and reconstruction time are calculated. Strong differences are found for even or odd number of sites and the limit N--> infinity is studied. The predictions of the model could be tested with microtechnology and nanotechnology devices.
Recently a nonlinear Fick-Jacobs equation has been proposed for the description of transport and diffusion of particles interacting through a hard-core potential in tubes or channels of varying cross section [Suárez et al., Phys. Rev. E 91, 012135 (2015)]PLEEE81539-375510.1103/PhysRevE.91.012135. Here we focus on the analysis of the current and mobility… (More)
The one-dimensional motion of a chain of N beads is studied to determine its diffusion coefficient. We found an exact analytical expression for all through two methods by resorting to the Einstein relation. Results are tested with the help of Monte Carlo simulations.
The necklace model, which mimics the reptation of a chain of N beads in a square lattice, is used to study the drift velocity of charged linear polymers in gels under an applied electric field that periodically changes its direction. The characteristics of the model allow us to determine the effects of the alternating electric field on the chains' dynamics.… (More)
The behavior of the island density exponent chi for a model of deposition, nucleation, and aggregation of particles, forming point islands with a sticking probability p in one dimension, is analyzed. Using Monte Carlo simulation we found that chi depends on p. For p=1 we obtain chi congruent with 1/4, the well-known result for perfect sticking and… (More)
