We present a review of analytical approaches involved in developing the ratchet theory, which are based on the model of extremely asymmetric sawtooth potential. Analytical expressions are given for the average velocity of ratchets which operate in various motion modes, namely, motion induced by dichotomous half-period shifts of potential profiles, adiabatic and high-temperature modes, and motion induced by small fluctuations of an arbitrary type. The presence of jumps in the periodic extremely asymmetric sawtooth potential profile leads to a number of features of the obtained solutions which follow from the competition of the reverse sliding time tending to infinity with high fluctuation frequencies. The resulting dependences of the average velocity on the ratchet parameters clearly demonstrate that the motion direction can be controlled by tuning the frequency and temperature. The heuristic value of the presented models for controlling nanoparticle transport is discussed.
