Macroscopic limit cycle via noise-induced phase transition

Academic Article


  • Bistability generated via a noise-induced phase transition is reexamined from the view of macroscopic dynamical systems, which clarifies the role of fluctuation better than the conventional Fokker-Plank or Langevin equation approach. Using this approach, we investigated the spatially-extended systems with two degrees of freedom per site. The model systems undergo a noise-induced phase transition through a Hopf bifurcation, leading to a macroscopic limit cycle motion similar to the deterministic relaxation oscillation.
