Abstract

Diffusion in a narrow two-dimensional channel of width A (x), depending on the longitudinal coordinate x, is the object of our study. We show how the 2+1 dimensional diffusion equation can be projected onto a 1+1 dimensional one, governing corresponding one-dimensional density, in a steady-state approximation. Then we demonstrate the method on a nontrivial exactly solvable case for A (x) =x and discuss projection of the initial condition.
