Abstract: A class of one-dimensional Fokker-Plank equations having a common stationary solution, which is a power function of the state of the process, was found. We prove that these equations also have generalized self-similar solutions which describe the temporary transition from one stationary state to another. The study was motivated by problems arising in mathematical modeling of genome size evolution.

Keywords:  Fokker-Plank equations, self-similar solutions, genom evolutions.
