  author={Lorenzo Marrucci and Domenico Paparo and Maximilian Kreuzer},
We show that the correlated stochastic fluctuation of the friction coefficient can give rise to long-range directional motion of a particle undergoing Brownian random walk in a constant periodic energy potential landscape. The occurrence of this motion requires the presence of two additional independent bodies interacting with the particle via friction and… CONTINUE READING
