Stretched Markov nature of single-file self-dynamics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the generalized diffusion of a tagged particle in a one-dimensional fluid of hard-point particles. The dynamics of a single particle in its nonuniform, nondeterministic environment is assumed known. On eliminating suitably defined transients from the exact solution, we find a universal form for the tagged particle dynamics when written in terms of stretched space and time, appearing as the classical telegrapher's equation.
