Fokker-Planck equation

(shows likelihood of velocity over time of a disturbed particle)

The Fokker-Plank equation gives the density of the probability of different velocities for a particle disturbed randomly, e.g., by Brownian motion. In astrophysics, it has been used to model the effect stars have on passing other stars.
