Fractional Diffusion Processes: Probability Distributions and Continuous Time Random Walk

A physical-mathematical approach to anomalous diffusion may be based on fractional diffusion equations and related random walk models. The fundamental solutions of these equations can be interpreted

Time Fractional Diffusion Equations and Analytical Solvable Models

The anomalous diffusion of a particle that moves in complex environments is analytically studied by means of the time fractional diffusion equation. The influence on the dynamics of a random moving

TLDR
A fractional advection-diffusion equation describing the biased spreading packet is proposed and investigated, finding a third term describing symmetry breaking which is omnipresent for transport in disordered systems.

Fractional diffusion equation approach to the anomalous diffusion on fractal lattices

A generalized fractional diffusion equation (FDE) is presented, which describes the time-evolution of the spatial distribution of a particle performing continuous time random walk (CTRW) on a fractal

Anomalous Diffusion: Models, Their Analysis, and Interpretation

In this chapter, modeling of anomalous diffusion processes in terms of differential equations of an arbitrary (not necessarily integer)ord er is discussed. We start with micro-modeling and first

Front dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems with Levy flights: a fractional diffusion approach.

TLDR
Front dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems where anomalous diffusion is due to asymmetric Levy flights is studied, replacing the Laplacian diffusion operator by a fractional diffusion operator of order alpha, whose fundamental solutions are Levy alpha-stable distributions that exhibit power law decay.
