Abstract

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.
