Escape through an unstable limit cycle: resonant activation.


We consider a Brownian particle acted on by a linear conservative force, a nonlinear frictional force, and multiplicative colored and additive white noises; the frictional force can be negative when the external energy supply is large enough. We numerically calculate the mean first passage time (MFPT) for the particle to escape from an unstable limit cycle… (More)
