Anomalous transport: foundations and applications by Rainer Klages, Günter Radons, Igor M. Sokolov

By Rainer Klages, Günter Radons, Igor M. Sokolov

This multi-author reference paintings offers a different advent to the at the moment rising, hugely interdisciplinary box of these shipping strategies that can't be defined through the use of commonplace tools of statistical mechanics. It comprehensively summarizes themes starting from mathematical foundations of anomalous dynamics to the latest experiments during this box. In so doing, this monograph extracts and emphasizes universal rules and strategies from many alternative disciplines whereas delivering up to date assurance of this new box of analysis, contemplating such diversified functions as plasma physics, glassy fabric, mobile technology, and socio-economic features. The e-book could be of curiosity to either theorists and experimentalists in nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics and stochastic procedures. It additionally kinds a fantastic place to begin for graduate scholars stepping into this region. 18 chapters written via the world over well-known specialists during this box offer in-depth introductions to basic features of anomalous delivery.

Allegrini, P. J. West at Denton (TX), August 2005 and the Workshop Anomalous Transport: Experimental Results and Theoretical Challenges organized by R. Klages, G. M. Sokolov at Bad Honnef (Germany), July 2006. For the former workshop, which was attended by myself but not by him, the organizers invited him to submit his contribution to the special issue of Chaos 7 8 1 In Memoriam: Radu Balescu Solitons and Fractals. For the latter workshop, both of us agreed to participate: in our intentions this event would have provided the occasion for our meeting and exchange of ideas on topics of common interest.

The result is a nonMarkovian and nonlocal, formally linear equation, in which the rate of change of the density profile n( x, t) at point x and time t is related to the values of this function at neighboring points x + r and at past times t − T. Its structure is similar, but not identical (because of different approximations), to the equation of Sánchez et al. On the other hand, it can be shown that there exists an “equivalent” CTRW. The transition probability in the Montroll–Shlesinger equation describing the latter is related to the Eulerian velocity autocorrelation and to the ensemble-averaged propagator of the HKE G ( x, t| x , t ) .

The research was a project with Marco Pettini and Jacques Misguich and was mainly based on some ideas by Radu Balescu. As a consequence of funny interactions with the CEA bureaucracy, Marco Pettini and I went to Bruxelles where we had the opportunity to use a free good computer, and overall get to know Radu. My knowledge of plasma physics was (and still is) rather elementary; fortunately our research was basically a statistical mechanics problem. So Marco and I had not particular difficulties in the computational and theoretical aspects, but we had very vague ideas of the real physical relevance of our results.
