ABSTRACT
For a system driven by coloured noise, we investigate the activation energy of escape, and the dynamics during the escape. We have performed analogue experiments to measure the change in activation energy as the power spectrum of the noise varies. An adiabatic approach based on path integral theory allows us to calculate analytically the critical value at which a phase transition in the activation energy occurs. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We study how additive noise influences noise-induced nonequilibrium phase transitions. The review of the most recent results and a discussion about open questions is presented. We show that additive noise strongly influences a noise-induced phase transition. We demonstrate also that additive...

    It is shown that the interaction of order parameters when subcritical and supercritical phase transitions take place simultaneously may result in a self-organized critical state and cause a 1/f[sup α] fluctuation spectrum, where 1 ≤ α ≤ 2. Such behavior is inherent in potential...
