Local diffusion coefficients in disordered systems such as spin glass systems and living cells are highly heterogeneous and may change over time. Such a time-dependent and spatially heterogeneous environment results in irreproducibility of single-particle-tracking measurements. Irreproducibility of time-averaged observables has been theoretically studied in the context of weak ergodicity breaking in stochastic processes. Here, we provide rigorous descriptions of equilibrium and non-equilibrium… 

Non-self-averaging behaviors and ergodicity in quenched trap models with finite system sizes.

Here it is reported on non-self-averaging phenomena in quenched trap models with finite system sizes, where the periodic and the reflecting boundary conditions are considered.

Anomalous diffusion, nonergodicity, and ageing for exponentially and logarithmically time-dependent diffusivity: striking differences for massive versus massless particles

We investigate a diffusion process with a time-dependent diffusion coefficient, both exponentially increasing and decreasing in time, D(t)=D0e±2αt . For this (hypothetical) nonstationary diffusion

Biased continuous-time random walks for ordinary and equilibrium cases: facilitation of diffusion, ergodicity breaking and ageing.

It is demonstrated that in the presence of a drift CTRWs with α < 1 are ageing and non-ergodic in the sense of the non-equivalence of their ensemble and time averaged displacement characteristics in the limit of lag times much shorter than the trajectory length.

Non-Gaussianity, population heterogeneity, and transient superdiffusion in the spreading dynamics of amoeboid cells.

The current analysis of single-cell motions of the Dictyostelium discoideum amoeboid cells is implemented for quantifying diffusive behaviours in other living-matter systems, in particular, when effects of active transport, non-Gaussian displacements, and heterogeneity of the population are involved in the dynamics.

Infinite invariant density in a semi-Markov process with continuous state variables.

It is shown that the infinite invariant density plays an important role in determining the distribution of time averages, and two scaling laws describing the density for the state value are found, which accumulates in the vicinity of zero in the long-time limit.

Unveiling diffusive states from center-of-mass trajectories in glassy dynamics.

Applying the proposed method to detect alternating diffusive states undergoing a free diffusive state and a trapped state described by the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process to molecular dynamics simulation data of supercooled liquids, it is shown that trapped states last for a long time and the sojourn-time distribution for trapped states becomes a power-law form as the temperature approaches the glass temperature.

Infinite ergodic theory for three heterogeneous stochastic models with application to subrecoil laser cooling.

We compare ergodic properties of the kinetic energy for three stochastic models of subrecoil-laser-cooled gases. One model is based on a heterogeneous random walk (HRW), another is an HRW with

Occupation time statistics of the fractional Brownian motion in a finite domain.

We study statistics of occupation times for a fractional Brownian motion (fBm), which is a typical model of a non-Markov process. Due to the non-Markovian nature, recurrence times to the origin

An approach to obtain the exact nonequilibrium steady state of such systems and the mean first passage time to reach the origin is presented and the explicit solutions for two different model systems are obtained.

Learning physical properties of anomalous random walks using graph neural networks

A new, fast approach to inferring random walk properties based on graph neural networks (GNNs) that can reliably learn models of random walks and their anomalous exponents by performing simulation-based supervised learning on this construct.

Distributional behaviors of time-averaged observables in the Langevin equation with fluctuating diffusivity: Normal diffusion but anomalous fluctuations.

It is found that temporally heterogeneous environments provide anomalous fluctuations of time-averaged diffusivity, which have relevance to large fluctuations of the diffusion coefficients obtained by single-particle-tracking trajectories in experiments.

Langevin equation with fluctuating diffusivity: A two-state model.

A Langevin equation with diffusivity fluctuating between a fast and a slow state is investigated and the relative standard deviation (RSD) of the time-averaged MSD is utilized and it is shown that the RSD exhibits slow relaxation as a signature of the long-time correlation in the fluctuating Diffusivity.

Fluctuation analysis of time-averaged mean-square displacement for the Langevin equation with time-dependent and fluctuating diffusivity.

A general formula for the relative standard deviation of the TAMSD for the Langevin equation with the time-dependent and fluctuating diffusivity is derived and it is shown that the RSD can be expressed in terms of the correlation function of the diffusivities.

Intrinsic randomness of transport coefficient in subdiffusion with static disorder.

Fluctuations in the time-averaged mean-square displacement for random walks on hypercubic lattices with static disorder are investigated. It is analytically shown that the diffusion coefficient

Transition from distributional to ergodic behavior in an inhomogeneous diffusion process: Method revealing an unknown surface diffusivity.

It is shown that the ensemble-averaged mean-square displacements increase linearly with time when the desorption rate from the surface is finite, which is valid even when the diffusion on thesurface is anomalous (subdiffusion).

Anomalous diffusion models and their properties: non-stationarity, non-ergodicity, and ageing at the centenary of single particle tracking.

This Perspective is intended as a guidebook for both experimentalists and theorists working on systems, which exhibit anomalous diffusion, and pays special attention to the ergodicity breaking parameters for the different anomalous stochastic processes.

Anomalous transport in the crowded world of biological cells

A large body of recent experimental evidence for anomalous transport in crowded biological media is reported on in cyto- and nucleoplasm as well as in cellular membranes, complemented by in vitro experiments where a variety of model systems mimic physiological crowding conditions.

Nonergodicity mimics inhomogeneity in single particle tracking.

It is shown that, contrary to what is expected, the temporal averaged mean squared displacement leads to a simple diffusive behavior with diffusion coefficients that strongly differ from one trajectory to another.

This work performs molecular dynamics simulations of equilibrated short-chain polymer melts near the critical temperature of mode-coupling theory Tc and extracts "moves" from the monomer trajectories, showing that not all moves comply with the conditions of a CTRW.
