Fluctuation-induced symmetry breaking in a bistable system: A generic mechanism of selection between competing options
2004 (English)In: International Journal Of Bifurcation And Chaos, Vol. 14, no 7, 2399-2405 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A two-variable bistable system modeling the selection between competing options is considered in the presence of additive white noise, representing environmental or internal variability. It is shown that when the strengths of the noises acting on the evolution equations of the two variables are different a symmetry-breaking process takes place, whereby the state in which the excess variable is perturbed by the strongest noise becomes predominant.
