The study of stochastic nonlinear systems is currently an emerging area of research. In particular, the interplay between noise and nonlinearity in dynamical systems engenders novel phenomena such as stochastic resonance that are of importance from both the theoretical and applied points of view. Highlights of current research in this area being pursued at CENDAC are listed below. Additional information regarding each topic can be found by visiting the Research section of this site.
