The concept of continuous-time random walks (CTRW) is a generalization of ordinary random walk models, and it is a powerful tool for investigating a broad spectrum of phenomena in natural, engineering, social, and economic sciences. Recently, several theoretical approaches have been developed that allowed to analyze explicitly dynamics of CTRW at all times, which is critically important for understanding mechanisms of underlying phenomena. However, theoretical analysis has been done mostly for…

A Random Walk Approach to Transport in Tissues and Complex Media: From Microscale Descriptions to Macroscale Models.

Multistate continuous-time random walks and generalized master equations are used to model transport processes involving spatial jumps, immobilization at defined sites, and stochastic internal state changes, motivated by problems arising in transport in biological tissues.

Sustained currents in coupled diffusive systems

Coupling two diffusive systems may give rise to a nonequilibrium stationary state (NESS) with a non-trivial persistent, circulating current. We study a simple example that is exactly soluble,

Continuous-time random walks at all times.

A new theoretical approach is presented, based on generalized master equations picture, which allowed us to obtain explicit expressions for Laplace transforms for all dynamic quantities for different CTRW models, which leads to the effective description of CTRW at all times.

Generalized Master Equations for Non-Poisson Dynamics on Networks

The effects of non-Poisson inter-event statistics on the dynamics of edges are examined, and the concept of a generalized master equation is applied to the study of continuous-time random walks on networks.

Random walks on lattices. IV. Continuous-time walks and influence of absorbing boundaries

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

Propagators and related descriptors for non-Markovian asymmetric random walks with and without boundaries.

It is shown that in the infinite space, the propagator satisfies a relation that can be interpreted as a generalized fluctuations theorem since it reduces to the conventional fluctuation theorem at large times.

Generalized master equations for continuous-time random walks

An equivalence is established between generalized master equations and continuous-time random walks by means of an explicit relationship betweenψ(t), which is the pausing time distribution in the

Stochastic theory of multistate diffusion in perfect and defective systems. I. Mathematical formalism

A stochastic theory of multistate transport on ideal and defective lattices is presented. A continuous-time random-walk formalism with the inclusion of internal states is used in the derivation of a

Extended kinetic models with waiting-time distributions: Exact results

The concept of “mechanicity” is introduced to conveniently quantify departures from simple “chemical,” kinetic rate processes, and its significance is briefly indicated.

Spatial Markov model of anomalous transport through random lattice networks.

A Lagrangian statistical model is proposed that takes the form of a continuous time random walk with correlated velocities derived from a genuinely multidimensional Markov process in space that captures the anomalous (non-Fickian) longitudinal and transverse spreading, and the tail of the mean first-passage time observed in the Monte Carlo simulations of particle transport.
