Abstract
A continuous Markovian model for truncated Lévy flights is proposed. It generalizes the approach developed previously by Lubashevsky et al. [Phys. Rev. E 79, 011110 (2009); Phys. Rev. E 80, 031148 (2009), Eur. Phys. J. B 78, 207 (2010)] and allows for nonlinear friction in wandering particle motion as well as saturation of the noise intensity depending on the particle velocity. Both the effects have own reason to be considered and, as shown in the paper, individually give rise to a… Expand

A multidimensional model for nonlinear Markovian random walks that generalizes the one developed previously is presented and it is demonstrated that anomalously long displacements of the wandering particle are caused by extremely large fluctuations in the particle velocity whose duration is determined by the system parameters rather than the duration of the observation interval.
