Recently, dispersionless (coherent) motion of (noninteracting) massive Brownian particles, at intermediate time scales, was reported in a sinusoidal potential with a constant tilt. The coherent motion persists for a finite length of time before the motion becomes diffusive. We show that such coherent motion can be obtained repeatedly by applying an external(More)
The underdamped Langevin equation of motion of a particle, in a symmetric periodic potential and subjected to a symmetric periodic forcing with mean zero over a period, with nonuniform friction, is solved numerically. The particle is shown to acquire a steady state mean velocity at asymptotically large timescales. At these large timescales the position(More)
The phenomenon of stochastic resonance (SR) is known to occur mostly in bistable systems. However, the question of the occurrence of SR in periodic potential systems has not been resolved conclusively. Our present numerical work shows that the periodic potential system indeed exhibits SR in the high-frequency regime, where the linear-response theory yields(More)
