The mean exit time escaping basin of attraction in the presence of white noise is of practical importance in various scientific fields. In this work, we propose a strategy to control mean exit time of general stochastic dynamical systems to achieve a desired value based on the quasipotential concept and machine learning. Specifically, we develop a neural network architecture to compute the global quasipotential function. Then we design a systematic iterated numerical algorithm to calculate the…

Slow manifolds for stochastic Koper models with stable L\'evy noises

The Koper model is a vector field in which the di ff erential equations describe the electrochemical oscillations appearing in di ff usion processes. This work focuses on the understanding of the slow



Machine learning framework for computing the most probable paths of stochastic dynamical systems.

A machine learning method for computing quasi-potential of stochastic dynamical systems

A machine learning method to compute the quasi-potential of stochastic dynamical systems via WKB approximation based on the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, which provides an effective tool in exploring the internal mechanisms of rare events triggered by random perturbations in various scientific fields.

Most probable dynamics of stochastic dynamical systems with exponentially light jump fluctuations.

Although the most probable exit paths are analogous to the Gaussian case for the isotropic noise, the anisotropic noise leads to significant changes in the structure of the exit paths and shed light on the underlying qualitative mechanism and quantitative feature of theexit phenomenon induced by non-Gaussian noise.

The geometric minimum action method: A least action principle on the space of curves

An algorithm to compute the quasi‐potential in the theory is proposed, which is the key object to quantify the dynamics on long time scales when the effect of the noise becomes ubiquitous: the equilibrium distribution of the system, the pathways of transition between metastable states and their rate, etc., can all be expressed in terms of the quasi-potential.

Limiting Exit Location Distributions in the Stochastic Exit Problem

It is shown using formal methods that the asymptotic form of the exit location distribution on $\partial\Omega$ is generically non-Gaussian and asymmetric, and classify the possible limiting distributions.

Crossing the quasi-threshold manifold of a noise-driven excitable system

It is found that varying the noise term in the slow variable would dramatically raise the whole level of quasi-potentials, leading to significant changes in both patterns of optimal paths and exit locations.
