# Diffusion in infinite and semi-infinite lattices with long-range coupling

@article{Martnez2012DiffusionII, title={Diffusion in infinite and semi-infinite lattices with long-range coupling}, author={Alejandro J. Mart́ınez and Mario I. Molina}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={2012}, volume={45}, pages={275204} }

We prove that for a one-dimensional, infinite periodic lattice, with long-range coupling among sites, the diffusion of an initial delta-like pulse in the bulk is ballistic at all times, with a ?speed? that depends on the ?smoothness? of the dispersion relation. We obtain a closed-form expression for the mean square displacement (MSD), and show some relevant examples including finite-range coupling, exponentially decreasing coupling and power-law decreasing coupling. For the case of an initial…
