Noise-Induced Synchronization and Stochastic Resonance in a Bistable System
- 1.1k Downloads
We determine stochastic resonance and locking conditions for noise-induced interwell jumps in a bistable system. We demonstrate that the phenomena of stochastic resonance and synchronization are not contradictory and can be interpreted as the limit cases of hopping dynamics modulated by a weak signal. The boundary between the domains of synchronization and stochastic resonance is found as a function of the system parameters.
