Diffusion with stochastic resetting (part II)
I will discuss the problem of many independent searchers looking for a target. One considers searchers (diffusive particles) initially randomly distributed on a line and computes the survival probability of the target of their search which is located at the origin. In this problem the concepts of 'quenched' and 'annealed' averages corresponding to typical and average behaviour are significant. In the presence of stochastic resetting to the searchers' initial positions the difference between the two behaviours is dramatic.
This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
