Fluctuation relations for anomalous dynamics generated by time-fractional Fokker-Planck equations

  • Anomalous dynamics characterized by non-Gaussian probability distributions (PDFs) and/or temporal long-range correlations can cause subtle modifications of conventional fluctuation relations (FRs). As prototypes we study three variants of a generic time-fractional Fokker-Planck equation with constant force. Type A generates superdiffusion, type B subdiffusion and type C both super-and subdiffusion depending on parameter variation. Furthermore type C obeys a fluctuation-dissipation relation whereas A and B do not. We calculate analytically the position PDFs for all three cases and explore numerically their strongly non-Gaussian shapes. While for type C we obtain the conventional transient work FR, type A and type B both yield deviations by featuring a coefficient that depends on time and by a nonlinear dependence on the work. We discuss possible applications of these types of dynamics and FRs to experiments.
