In the late seventies we have endeavoured to describe adequately (Plonka et al. 1979) the complex decay patterns of radiation produced hydrogen atoms in low-temperature aqueous glasses with the use of the time-dependent rate constant k(t) of the form
$${\text{k(t) = B}}{{\text{t}}^{{\alpha - 1}}},{\text{ 0 < }}\alpha \leqslant {\text{1}}$$
where B and ∝ are constants. This peculiar form (1.1) of the time-dependent rate constant was derived from the continuous time random walk, CTRW, model developed for the anomalous electron transit-time dispersion in amorphous solids (Scher and Montroll 1975) and used to describe the decay of excess electrons trapped in rigid glassy matrices (Hamill and Funabashi 1977).
