Brownian Motion in Confined Geometries

The Brownian dynamics of micro- or nanosized particles or molecules often proceeds under geometrical constraints leading to novel transport phenomena. We aim at bridging available results on confined Brownian motion of point particles with the emerging work on translocation of realistic complex solutes relevant to biotechnology and biophysics.

Topics include
• Brownian motion and random walks in confined geometries
• escape problems and search strategies in confined geometries
• channel-facilitated transport of biopolymers
• applications in micro- and nano-fluidics confined geometries
• mass and charge transport in artificial and natural micro- and nano-structures
• diffusive mechanisms in confined geometries
• transport of particles, polymers and complex biomolecules in biological cells and zeolites
• catalytic reactions occurring on confining, non-uniform templates or in porous media
• separation techniques of size-dispersed particles
• geometrically confined self-propelled particles
