The study of the effects of noise and fluctuations is a well established subject in several different disciplines ranging from pure mathematics (stochastic processes) to physics (fluctuations) and electrical engineering (noise and radiophysics). In traditional statistical physics, fluctuations are of thermal origin giving rise to small departures from a mean value. They tend to zero as one approaches the thermodynamic limit in which different statistical descriptions (different ensembles… Expand
Multiplicative Noise in Non-equilibrium Phase Transitions: A tutorial
Stochastic phenomena in which the noise amplitude is proportional to the fluctuating variable itself, usually called {\it multiplicative noise}, appear ubiquitously in physics, biology, economy andExpand

Scaling and synchronization in deterministic and stochastic nonlinear dynamical systems
TLDR
The synchronization transition in strongly coupled spatially extended chaotic systems is shown to resemble a continuous phase transition, with the coupling strength and the synchronization error as control and order parameter, respectively. Expand

TLDR
The model can be reduced to a one-dimensional bistable potential system with a multiplicative stochastic term related to the current noise strength and clarifies the influence of the different noise sources on the hopping dynamics. Expand
