Abstract

Nonlinear systems are abundant in nature. Their dynamics have been extensively investigated due to their multidisciplinary applicability, ranging from all branches of physical and mathematical sciences to engineering as well as to life sciences and medicine. When driven by external forces, nonlinear systems can exhibit plethora of interesting and important properties - one of the most prominent being resonance. In the presence of a second, higher frequency, driving force, whether stochastic or deterministic/periodic, a resonance phenomenon arises that can generally be termed stochastic resonance or vibrational resonance. Operating a system in or out of resonance promises applications in several advanced technologies, such as the creation of novel materials at the nano, micro and macroscales including, but not limited to, materials having photonic band gaps, quantum control of atoms and molecules as well as miniature condensed matter systems. Motivated in part by these potential applications, this Theme Issue provides a concrete up-to-date overview of vibrational and stochastic resonances in driven nonlinear systems. It assembles state-of-the-art, original contributions on such induced resonances - addressing their analysis, occurrence, and applications from either the theoretical, numerical and experimental perspectives, or through combinations of these.
