Abstract

Kinetics determined by an ensemble of time-independent but statistically distributed rates have been investigated mathematically. Some analytically resolved properties of the corresponding decay function are stated with respect to their application to experimental results. This approach to dispersive processes is briefly compared to the well known exp(- τα) law.
