A primer on noise-induced transitions in applied dynamical systems

  title={A primer on noise-induced transitions in applied dynamical systems},
  author={Eric Forgoston and Richard O. Moore},
Noise plays a fundamental role in a wide variety of physical and biological dynamical systems. It can arise from an external forcing or due to random dynamics internal to the system. It is well established that even weak noise can result in large behavioral changes such as transitions between or escapes from quasi-stable states. These transitions can correspond to critical events such as failures or extinctions that make them essential phenomena to understand and quantify, despite the fact that… CONTINUE READING
