In this paper, we discuss the difference between the deterministic and stochastic models of nonlocal diffusion. We use a nonlocal reaction-diffusion equation and a multi-dimensional jump Markov process to analyze these mathematical models. First, we demonstrate that the difference converges to 0 in probability with a supremum norm for a sizeable network. Next, we consider the rescaled difference and show that it converges to a stochastic process in distribution on the Skorokhod space.
