Stochastic Systems

Until now in this book, we have focused on the transition in the dynamical behavior of conservative classical and quantum systems (the transition to chaos) which occurs when constants of the motion are destroyed by internal resonances. There is now some evidence that similar behavior may occur in stochastic systems as well. In this chapter we shall describe some of these preliminary results.
