This short chapter is devoted to the relation between diffusion and mobility. Indeed, until now, the process of mass redistribution was attributed to mixing on a microscale. We now ask what effects force fields can have on this redistribution, as they affect particle flows through a drift or mobility term, in addition to the usual diffusion term.
