Such scaling holds e. g. for the mean time spent by a walk in a prescribed region of space (i. e. for the mean first passage time to its boundary). For an isotropic system Eq.

Compactons of the K(n,n) Equation The K(n,n) equation [16,17] was introduced by Rosenau and Hyman in 1993. This equation was investigated experimentally and analytically. The K(m,n) equation is a genuinely nonlinear dispersive equation, a special type of the n>1: (59) Compactons, which are solitons with compact support or strict localization of solitary waves, have been investigated thoroughly in the literature. The delicate interaction between the effect of the genuine nonlinear convection (u n )x and the genuinely nonlinear dispersion of (u n )x x x generates solitary waves with exact compact support that are called compactons.
