Brownian motion is the random motion of particles, e.g., molecules, suspended in the fluid medium, e.g., liquid and gas, that results from a large number of collisions those particles experience with the fast-moving particles of the fluid medium.

Brownian motion (BM) is an important phenomenon that is the basis of diffusion-based propagation of molecules in molecular communication (MC) and, therefore, is the fundamental principle behind diffusion-based MC in the field of nanoscale communication networks, also known as nanonetworks. In the field of natural and applied sciences, BM is also popularly known as random walk motion of particles. The history of BM is quite old. Random...
