Driven Anisotropic Diffusion at Boundaries: Noise Rectification and Particle Sorting
Author(s): Stefano Bo and Ralf Eichhorn
We study the diffusive dynamics of a Brownian particle in the proximity of a flat surface under nonequilibrium conditions, which are created by an anisotropic thermal environment with different temperatures being active along distinct spatial directions. By presenting the exact time-dependent soluti...
