BGER- First-passage time statistics in 2D geometry

Activity: Other activity types - Research and Teaching at External Organisation


Many processes, being physical or biological, depend critically on encounter events between moving particles or agents or between an agent and a fixed target. How the statistics of the movement and the form of the confinement affect these encounter times is a topic of broad interest and applicability. During this brief research visit we have attempted to develop novel exact and approximate mathematical techniques to estimate first-passage times to a fixed target and first-encounter times between two randomly moving individuals.
