Studies on Random Walks and Diffusion Related Problems

In particular, analytic and numerical studies of random walks with introduction of anisotropies in the velocity. Points of interest are the evolution of the Probability Distribution with the time and its moments, as well as the exact form of the First Passage Probability Distribution. Analytical studies involve the use of generating function techniques, whereas numerical studies are based on both Monte-Carlo and Exact Enumeration techniques.
