Absolute diffusion

 

Absolute diffusion or single particle diffusion is used to describe the average movement of a particle with time, and can for instance be studied in this form:
 eqnarray360
In the case of Brownian motion  tex2html_wrap_inline4379 will be proportional to tex2html_wrap_inline4381 and in the case of ballistic motion tex2html_wrap_inline4379 will be proportional to tex2html_wrap_inline4385.
