Recently, anomalous subdiffusion, aging, and scatter of the diffusion coefficient have been reported in many single-particle-tracking experiments, though the origins of these behaviors are still elusive. Here, as a model to describe such phenomena, we investigate a Langevin equation with diffusivity fluctuating between a fast and a slow state. Namely, the diffusivity follows a dichotomous stochastic process. We assume that the sojourn time distributions of these two states are given by power… Expand
Brownian motion with alternately fluctuating diffusivity: Stretched-exponential and power-law relaxation.
A theory of alternating renewal processes to study a relaxation function which is expressed with an integral of the diffusivity over time, and it is theoretically shown that, at short times, the exponential relaxation or the stretched-exponential relaxation are observed depending on the power-law index of the sojourn-time distributions.

Fractional Brownian motion with random diffusivity: emerging residual nonergodicity below the correlation time
Numerous examples for a priori unexpected non-Gaussian behaviour for normal and anomalous diffusion have recently been reported in single-particle tracking experiments. Here, we address the case ofExpand
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 diffusionExpand
Distributional Behavior of Diffusion Coefficients Obtained by Single Trajectories in Annealed Transit Time Model
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 heterogeneousExpand
Hitchhiker model for Laplace diffusion processes.
This model explains how Laplace diffusion is controlled by size fluctuations of single molecules, independently of the diffusion law which they follow, and shows how single-molecule tracking and data analysis, in a many-body system, is highly nontrivial as tracking of a single particle or many in parallel yields vastly different estimates for the diffusivity.

Non-Gaussian diffusion in static disordered media.
This work investigates the non-Gaussian diffusion in static disordered media via a quenched trap model, where the diffusivity is spatially correlated, and analytically estimates the diffusion coefficient D_{dis} and its fluctuation over samples of finite size. Expand
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.

Superstatistics and non-Gaussian diffusion
Brownian motion and viscoelastic anomalous diffusion in homogeneous environments are intrinsically Gaussian processes. In a growing number of systems, however, non-Gaussian displacement distributionsExpand
Random walk with chaotically driven bias
It is demonstrated that the ETVAR increases linearly with time, and the diffusion coefficient can be estimated by the time average of the local diffusion coefficient, similar to the Lévy walk. Expand
Lévy-walk-like Langevin dynamics
Continuous time random walks and Langevin equations are two classes of stochastic models for describing the dynamics of particles in the natural world. While some of the processes can be convenientlyExpand
