Abstract

Brownian particles driven by time-independent or time-periodic forces can be described in terms of an underlying conservative Hamiltonian system. When the Hamiltonian system undergoes a transition to chaos, the decay rates and other stochastic properties of the Brownian particle can be strongly affected.
