# The generalized Cattaneo equation for the description of anomalous transport processes

@article{Compte1997TheGC, title={The generalized Cattaneo equation for the description of anomalous transport processes}, author={Albert Compte and Ralf Metzler}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={1997}, volume={30}, pages={7277-7289} }

The Cattaneo equation, which describes a diffusion process with a finite velocity of propagation, is generalized to describe anomalous transport. Three possible generalizations are proposed, each one supported by a different scheme: continuous time random walks, non-local transport theory, and delayed flux-force relation. The properties of these generalizations are studied in both the long-time and the short-time regimes. In the long-time limit, we recover the mean-square displacement which is…
