    Abstract

    For a system driven by coloured noise, we investigate the activation energy of escape, and the dynamics during the escape. We have performed analogue experiments to measure the change in activation energy as the power spectrum of the noise varies. An adiabatic approach based on path integral theory allows us to calculate analytically the critical value at which a phase transition in the activation energy occurs.
