Nonmotile Single-Cell Migration as a Random Walk in Nonuniformity: The “Extreme Dumping Limit” for Cell-to-Cell Communications

Figure 2

Kurtosis versus time for three models considered in the present work. The constant function corresponds to the parabolic potential (second model, blue color), the one that eventually goes to 1 corresponds to the constant force (first model, red color), and the last one corresponds to the third model that combines the two (constant force in a harmonic trap, black color) for b = 0.5. Its asymptotic value depends on the interplay between θ and Vdrift and lies between 1 and 3.
