From the Lifshitz tail to the quenched survival asymptotics in the trapping problem


Fukushima, R (2009). From the Lifshitz tail to the quenched survival asymptotics in the trapping problem. Electronic Communications in Probability, 14:435-446.

Abstract

The survival problem for a diffusing particle moving among random traps is considered. We introduce a simple argument to derive the quenched asymptotics of the survival probability from the Lifshitz tail effect for the associated operator. In particular, the upper bound is proved in fairly general settings and is shown to be sharp in the case of the Brownian motion among Poissonian obstacles. As an application, we derive the quenched asymptotics for the Brownian motion among traps distributed according to a random perturbation of the lattice.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
