Reduction of the Number of Variables
Usually, the difficulty of solving the Fokker-Planck equation like any other partial differential equation increases with increasing number of independent variables. It is therefore advisable to eliminate as many variables as possible, so we discuss below three cases where the number of independent variables can be reduced.
