ABSTRACT
Escape from a metastable potential is considered on time-scales less than are needed for the creation of quasi-equilibrium within the well. It is shown that the escape flux may then depend exponentially strongly, and in a complicated way, on friction and time. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
