We analyze the fluctuation-driven escape of particles from a metastable state under the influence of a weak periodic force. We develop an asymptotic method to solve the appropriate Fokker-Planck equation with mixed natural and absorbing boundary conditions. The approach uses two boundary layers flanking an interior region; most of the probability is concentrated within the boundary layer near the metastable point of the potential and particles transit the interior region before exiting the… Expand

TLDR
A detailed theoretical and numerical study of stochastic resonance, based on a rate equation approach, results in an equation for the output signal-to-noise ratio as a function of the rate at which noise induces hopping between the two states. Expand
