A generalized fractional diffusion equation (FDE) is presented, which describes the time-evolution of the spatial distribution of a particle performing continuous time random walk (CTRW) on a fractal lattice. For a case corresponding to the CTRW with waiting time distribution that behaves as ψ (t) ~ t -(α+1), the FDE is solved to give analytic expressions for the Green’s function and the mean squared displacement (MSD). In agreement with the previous work of Blumen et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 1984, 53, 1301], the time-dependence of MSD is found to be given as < r2(t)> ~ t 2α /dw, where dw is the walk dimension of the given fractal. A Monte-Carlo simulation is also performed to evaluate the range of applicability of the proposed FDE.
