Abstract A continuous Markovian model for truncated Lévy flights is proposed. It generalizes the approach developed previously by Lubashevsky et al. [Phys. Rev. E 79, 011110 (2009); Phys. Rev. E 80, 031148 (2009), Eur. Phys. J. B 78, 207 (2010)] and allows for nonlinear friction in wandering particle motion as well as saturation of the noise intensity depending on the particle velocity. Both the effects have own reason to be considered and, as shown in the paper, individually give rise to a… Expand

Continuous-time multidimensional Markovian description of Lévy walks.
TLDR
A multidimensional model for nonlinear Markovian random walks that generalizes the one developed previously is presented and it is demonstrated that anomalously long displacements of the wandering particle are caused by extremely large fluctuations in the particle velocity whose duration is determined by the system parameters rather than the duration of the observation interval.

Realization of Lévy walks as Markovian stochastic processes.
TLDR
Based on multivariate Langevin processes, the generalized Langevin equation and the corresponding generalized Fokker-Planck equation describing Lévy flights are derived for the simple case of a particle moving under the influence of friction and a velocity-dependent stochastic force. Expand
Stochastic process with ultraslow convergence to a Gaussian: The truncated Lévy flight.
TLDR
A well-defined crossover is found between a L\'evy and a Gaussian regime, and that the crossover carries information about the relevant parameters of the underlying stochastic process. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that the characteristic function yields results in agreement with recent simulations of truncated Levy flights, and the convergence of the L\'evy process towards the Gaussian is demonstrated without simulations. Expand

Natural cutoff in Lévy flights caused by dissipative nonlinearity.
TLDR
The velocity distribution of a random walker subject to Lévy noise can be regularized by nonlinear friction, leading to a natural cutoff in the velocity distribution and finite velocity variance. Expand
Bifurcation, bimodality, and finite variance in confined Lévy flights.
TLDR
This work investigates the statistical behavior of Lévy flights confined in a symmetric, quartic potential well U(x) proportional, variant x(4), which shows a crossover from unimodal to bimodal behavior at stationarity, depending on the ratio a/b. Expand
