The probability distribution of Brownian motion in periodic potentials

25 Oct 2018 Sivan Matan Farago Oded

We calculate the probability distribution function (PDF) of an overdamped Brownian particle moving in a periodic potential energy landscape $U(x)$. The PDF is found by solving the corresponding Smoluchowski diffusion equation... (read more)
