Robinson, S. D. and Moss, F. and McClintock, Peter V. E. (1985) Experimental observation of stochastic postponements of critical onsets in a bistable system. Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General, 18 (2). L89-L94. ISSN 0305-4470Full text not available from this repository.
We have employed a novel type of analogue electronic simulator for an experimental study of a nonlinear stochastic differential equation representative of a large class of bistable systems. The results obtained are in good agreement with theoretical predictions derived from the Stratonovic version of the white noise Fokker-Planck equation. The work is believed to be of relevance to a wide range of topics in physics, chemistry, biology and other branches of science.
