Survival and confinement under quenched disorder
We study the survival and confinement of random walkers under quenched disorder characterized by spatially-varying waiting times and decay rates. Spatial heterogeneity and segregation lead to a dynamic coupling between transport and reaction, resulting in history-dependent dynamics exhibiting long survivals and confinement. The survival probability decays as a power law, in contrast to the classical exponential law for decay at a homogeneous rate. The mean squared displacement shows dimension-dependent subdiffusive growth followed by localization, with stronger confinement in higher dimensions.
