Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate anomalous diffusion generated by iterated maps and analyze the motion in terms of the probabilistic Lévy walks. We present expressions for the mean-squared displacement and for the propagator, which deviate from those for Brownian motion. The theoretical results are corroborated by numerical calculations.
