### Filling of a Poisson trap by a population of random intermittent searchers

Abstract:

We extend the continuum theory of random intermittent search processes to the case of $N$ independent searchers looking to deliver cargo to a single hidden target located somewhere on a semi--infinite track. Each searcher randomly switches between a stationary state and either a leftward or rightward constant velocity state. We assume that all of the particles start at one end of the track and realize sample trajectories independently generated from the same underlying stochastic process. The...
