Multifractal random walk in copepod behavior

Francccois G. Schmitt, Laurent Seuront
2001 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
A 3D copepod trajectory is recorded in the laboratory, using 2 digital cameras. The copepod undergoes a very structured type of trajectory, with successive moves displaying intermittent amplitudes.  ...  We perform a statistical analysis of this 3D trajectory using statistical tools developed in the field of turbulence and anomalous diffusion.  ...  Lagadeuc for initiating the collaboration with the Laboratory of Chemical Engineering Sciences.  ...

Negative differential mobility in interacting particle systems

Amit Kumar Chatterjee, Urna Basu, P. K. Mohanty
2018 Physical review. E  
We also introduce and solve exactly the steady state of several driven diffusive systems, including a two species exclusion model, asymmetric misanthrope and zero-range processes, to show explicitly that  ...  Driven particles in presence of crowded environment, obstacles or kinetic constraints often exhibit negative differential mobility (NDM) due to their decreased dynamical activity.  ...  We show that the system undergoes a cross-over from an initial fastrelaxing homogeneous state to a lane state via an intermediate heterogeneous state with anomalous dynamical responses, like the exponential  ...
