Experimental confirmation of a fundamental physical theorem The so-called ergodic theorem formulates a fundamental physical principle relating to the behavior of dynamical systems. Essentially the theorem states that in a multiparticle system each individual particle behaves just as “chaotically” as does the system as a whole. In other words, one can extrapolate from the behavior of a single element to that of the whole system. Strangely enough, in spite of its wide-ranging...

An understanding of particle diffusion in the presence of constrictions is essential in fields as diverse as drug delivery, cellular biology, nanotechnology, materials engineering, and spread of pollutants in the soil. When a driving force is applied, displacement of particles occurs as well as diffusion. A paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics, which is published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), quantifies the effects of periodic constrictions on drift and diffusion in systems...

By Tirabassi, Tiziano Buske, Daniela; Moreira, Davidson M; Vilhena, Marco T ABSTRACT A mathematical scheme is developed to simulate the vertical turbulent dispersion of air pollution that is absorbed or deposited to the ground. The scheme is an exact analytical solution of the atmospheric diffusion equation, without any restriction to the vertical profile of wind speed and eddy diffusivities, and taking into account the dry deposition by a boundary condition of a nonzero flux to the ground....
