The diffusion constant for two-state brownons

Abstract

We calculate the diffusion constant for two-state brownons when the change of state is not, as usually assumed, Markovian. The correction to the non-interchanging species result is found to be exactly expressible in terms of the Laplace transforms of the sojourn time densities.
