Reaction-rate theory: fifty years after Kramers

- P. Hänggi, P. Talkner, M. Borkovec
- Physics
- 1 April 1990

The calculation of rate coefficients is a discipline of nonlinear science of importance to much of physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology. Fifty years after Kramers' seminal paper on thermally… Expand

Bistable systems: Master equation versus Fokker-Planck modeling

- P. Hänggi, H. Grabert, P. Talkner, H. Thomas
- Physics
- 1984

Relaxation and fluctuations of nonlinear macroscopic systems, which are frequently described by means of Fokker-Planck or Langevin equations, are studied on the basis of a master equation. The… Expand

- Mathematics, Medicine
- Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and…
- 7 March 2007

The characteristic function of the work performed by an external time-dependent force on a Hamiltonian quantum system is identified with the time-ordered correlation function of the exponentiated… Expand

Driven quantum tunneling

- M. Grifoni, P. Hänggi
- Physics
- 1 October 1998

Abstract A contemporary review on the behavior of driven tunneling in quantum systems is presented. Diverse phenomena, such as control of tunneling, higher harmonic generation, manipulation of the… Expand

Thermodynamic laws in isolated systems.

- S. Hilbert, P. Hänggi, J. Dunkel
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and…
- 22 August 2014

The recent experimental realization of exotic matter states in isolated quantum systems and the ensuing controversy about the existence of negative absolute temperatures demand a careful analysis of… Expand

Generalized langevin equations: A useful tool for the perplexed modeller of nonequilibrium fluctuations?

- P. Hänggi
- Computer Science
- 1997

Stochastic resonance in biology. How noise can enhance detection of weak signals and help improve biological information processing.

- P. Hänggi
- Medicine
- Chemphyschem : a European journal of chemical…
- 15 March 2002

Noise is usually thought of as the enemy of order rather than as a constructive influence. In nonlinear systems that possess some sort of threshold, random noise plays a beneficial role in enhancing… Expand

Transformations of nonlinear dynamical systems to jerky motion and its application to minimal chaotic flows

- R. Eichhorn, S. J. Linz, P. Hänggi
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1998

Third-order explicit autonomous differential equations in one scalar variable or, mechanically interpreted, jerky dynamics constitute an interesting subclass of dynamical systems that can exhibit… Expand

Giant acceleration of free diffusion by use of tilted periodic potentials.
