Chaotic reaction-diffusion processes 
in multibakers

Max-Planck-Institut für Physik komplexer Systeme, Dresden


Third part of the weekly lecture series "Statistical dynamics of nonequilibrium systems" consisting of 5 lectures. Baker maps and so-called multibakers will be introduced, which serve as standard models in the field of chaos and transport. The fundamental properties of these models, time-reversal symmetry, and the relation to one-dimensional maps will be briefly discussed. On this basis, simple cases of transport and current reversal in biased multibaker maps will be analyzed. Finally, a reactive-diffusive multibaker will be introduced. Results for the chemical reaction rate as generated by microscopic deterministic chaos will be discussed.
