The Physical Brownian Motion: Diffusion And Noise

  • Zeev Schuss
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 170)


This chapter reviews the elementary phenomenology of diffusion and Fick’s derivation of the diffusion equation. It recounts Einstein’s theory that connects diffusion with the Brownian motion and Langevin’s extension of that theory. It presents the early mathematical theories of the Brownian motion.
