Noise-activated escape from a sloshing potential well

Robert S. Maier, D. L. Stein

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The noise-activated escape from a one-dimensional potential well of an overdamped particle was examined. Focus was on the case when the forcing does not die away in the weak-noise limit. The resulting data was analyzed in detail.
