STOCHASTIC RESONANCE: FROM CLIMATE TO BIOLOGY

by Prof. Roberto Benzi
University of Rome, "Tor Vergata"

Abstract

In this talk, I review the principal ideas on the mechanism of stochastic resonance as it was originally proposed to study long time climatic change. Next, I discuss possible generalization of stochastic resonance including network dynamics and Brownian motors. The last two topics are of interest in biological applications where stochastic resonance is currently applied in many research studies.
