Combining extensive single particle tracking microscopy data of endogenous lipid granules in living fission yeast cells with analytical results we show evidence for anomalous diffusion and weak ergodicity breaking. Namely we demonstrate that at short times the granules perform subdiffusion according to the laws of continuous time random walk theory. The(More)
We consider a minimal model of persistent random searcher with a short range memory. We calculate exactly for such a searcher the mean first-passage time to a target in a bounded domain and find that it admits a nontrivial minimum as function of the persistence length. This reveals an optimal search strategy which differs markedly from the simple ballistic(More)
We develop an analytical approach that provides the dependence of the mean first-passage time (MFPT) for random walks on complex networks both on the target connectivity and on the source-target distance. Our approach puts forward two strongly different behaviors depending on the type-compact or non compact-of the random walk. In the case of non compact(More)
We introduce a general framework, applicable to a broad class of random walks on networks, that quantifies the response of the mean first-passage time to a target node to a local perturbation of the network, both in the context of attacks (damaged link) or strategies of transport enhancement (added link). This approach enables to determine explicitly the(More)
