Example text

Recall, though, that two random variables can be identically distributed without being correlated. 1. Single-Slit Diffraction. According to the probability interpretation of light, formulated by Max Born in 1926, light intensity at a point is proportional to the probability that a photon exists at that point. a. What is the probability density p(x) that a single photon passes through a narrow slit and arrives at position x on a screen parallel to and at a distance d beyond the barrier? Each angle of forward propagation θ is 30 CONTINUOUS RANDOM VARIABLES the uniform random variable U (0, π/2).

Fick’s law, like F = ma and V = IR, both defines a quantity (diffusion constant, mass, or resistance) and states a relation between variables. The diffusion constant is positive definite, that is, D ≥ 0, because a gradient always drives an oppositely directed flux in an effort to diminish the gradient. 5) with D replacing δ 2 /2. In his famous 1905 paper on Brownian motion, Albert Einstein (1879–1955) constructed the diffusion equation in yet another way—directly from the continuity and Markov properties of Brownian motion.

We use the phrase Einstein’s Brownian motion to denote both these configuration-space descriptions (involving only position x or X ) of Brownian motion. In chapters 7 and 8, we will explore their relationship to Newton’s Second Law and possible velocity-space descriptions (involving velocity v or V as well as position).
