We perform Brownian dynamics simulations for studying the self-diffusion in two-dimensional (2D) dusty-plasma liquids, in terms of both mean-square displacement and the velocity autocorrelation function (VAF). Superdiffusion of charged dust particles has been observed to be the most significant at an infinitely small damping rate gamma for intermediate coupling strength, where the long-time asymptotic behavior of VAF is found to be the product of t;{-1} and exp(-gammat). The former represents… Expand
