AbstractWe present a master equation approach to the study of the bulk-mediated surface diffusionmechanism in a three-dimensional confined domain. The proposed scheme allowed us to evaluate analytically a number of magnitudes that were used to characterize the efficiency of the bulk-mediated surface transport mechanism, for instance, the mean escape time from the domain, and themean number of distinct visited sites on the confined domain boundary.
