We find explicit asymptotic formulas for the steady current in stochastic ratchets in a number of cases: sharp and smooth potential, multiplicative and additive jump noise. These analytical formulas allow us to determine the direction and the magnitude of the current as a function of the parameters of the problem. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We review our recent modeling studies of a type of stochastically phase locked firing activity seen in a wide variety of neurons. These studies highlight the interaction of stochastic and deterministic dynamics. We focus in particular on the implications of this activity for neural signalling,...

    An approximation to the solution of a stochastic parabolic equation is constructed using the Galerkin approximation followed by the Wiener chaos decomposition. The result is applied to the nonlinear filtering problem for the time-homogeneous diffusion model with correlated noise. An algorithm is...

    The maximal coherence between an external signal and the output of a noisy bistable system for nonvanishing optimal noise intensity, termed stochastic resonance, can also be observed in the stochastic dynamics of a phase difference between input and output. This formulation connects stochastic...

    We consider the problem of state selection for a stochastic system, initially in an unstable stationary state, when multiple metastable states compete for occupation. The problem is formulated in terms of coupled Langevin equations with Gaussian white noise of strength D. We first discuss some...

    A deterministic system that operates in the vicinity of a Hopf bifurcation can be described by a single equation of a complex variable, called the normal form. Proximity to the bifurcation ensures that on the stable side of the bifurcation ( i.e. on the side where a stable fixed point exists),...

    Models of stochastic choice are intended to capture the substantial amount of noise observed in decisions under risk. We present an experimental test of one model, which many regard as the default-the Basic Fechner model. We consider one of the model's key assumptions-that the noise around the...

    In this paper noise enhanced stability in magnetic systems is studied by both an Ising-type model and a Preisach–Arrhenius model as well as a dynamic Preisach model. It is shown that in one nonequilibrium Ising system noise enhanced stability occurs and that dynamic Preisach model has the...

    Here we numerically study the emergence of stochastic resonance as a mild phenomenon and how this transforms into an amazing enhancement of the signal-to-noise ratio at several levels of a disturbing ambient noise. The setting is a cooperative, interacting complex system modelled as an...

    In human perception, exogenous noise is known to yield a masking effect, i.e. an increase of the perceptual threshold relative to a stimulus acting on the same modality. However, somehow counter-intuitively, the opposite mechanism can occasionally occur: a decrease of the perceptual threshold...
