Fractional Brownian motion with Hurst index less then 1/2 and continuous-time random walk with heavy tailed waiting times (and the corresponding fractional Fokker-Planck equation) are two different processes that lead to a subdiffusive behavior widespread in complex systems. We propose a simple test, based on the analysis of the so-called p variations, which allows distinguishing between the two models on the basis of one realization of the unknown process. We apply the test to the data of… CONTINUE READING
