Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a simulation algorithm for a diffusion on a curved surface given by the equation [Formula Presented] The algorithm is tested against analytical results known for diffusion on a cylinder and a sphere, and applied to the diffusion on the P, D, and G periodic nodal surfaces. It should find application in an interpretation of two-dimensional exchange NMR spectroscopy data of diffusion on biological membranes.
