The PDF P (x, t) scales as a function of x/t1/4 , which essentially follows from its Fourier–Laplace representation. , P (x, t) = tα/2 . 6 Other characteristic properties of heavy-tailed CTRW In Chapter 2 we considered the return probabilities Fn (0) for random walks on lattices, as well as the mean number of distinct sites visited, Sn , as functions of the number of steps n.

This one is different from the probability of returning to the origin, which is considered at the end of this chapter. Up to now we considered one-dimensional CTRW. Let us now consider the case of higher dimensions. There exists a deep connection between the CTRW on lattices and the generating functions of the lattice random walks discussed in Chapter 2. 8): ∞ ∞ 1 − ψ(s) P (r, s) = Pn (r)χn (s) = Pn (r)ψ n (s). s n=0 n=0 The sum in this equation corresponds to the generating function of P (r, z), P (r, z) = ∞ n=0 Pn (r)z n , with the variable z now replaced for ψ(s).

3 Application to random walks: The first-passage and return probabilities We now apply the generating-functions tool to the problem of random walks on a lattice. In Chapter 1 we discussed the probability Pn (r) for a random walker’s displacement r after n steps. If the walker starts at the origin (site 0) the same Pn (r) gives us the probability of being at site r after n steps. 14) below: all the elements with odd numbers vanish. Our result here delivers an average of subsequent even and odd elements.
