In many biological and small scale technological applications particles may transiently bind to a cylindrical surface. In between two binding events the particles diffuse in the bulk, thus producing an effective translation on the cylindrical surface. We here derive the effective motion on the surface allowing for additional diffusion on the cylindrical surface itself. We find explicit solutions for the number of adsorbed particles at one given instant, the effective surface displacement, as ...Expand abstract
