Reaction dynamics involving subdiffusive species is an interesting topic with only few known results, especially when the motion of different species is characterized by different anomalous diffusion exponents. Here we study the reaction dynamics of a (sub)diffusive particle surrounded by a sea of (sub)diffusive traps in one dimension. Under some reasonable assumptions we find rigorous results for the asymptotic survival probability of the particle in most cases, but have not succeeded in doing so for a particle that diffuses normally while the anomalous diffusion exponent of the traps is smaller than 2/3.
We study the reaction front for the process A + B → C in which the reagents move subdiffusively. We propose a fractional reaction-subdiffusion equation in which both the motion and the reaction terms are affected by the subdiffusive character of the process. Scaling solutions to these equations are presented and compared with those of a direct numerical integration of the equations. We find that for reactants whose mean square displacement varies sublinearly with time as (r2) ~ tγ, the scaling behaviors of the reaction front can be recovered from those of the corresponding diffusive problem with the substitution t → tγ.
