Nonlinear Brownian motion


Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Physics, Leninskie Gory 1 build. 2, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

The theory of Brownian motion as described by nonlinear Langevin equations and the corresponding Fokker-Planck equations is discussed. The general problems of the theory of nonlinear Brownian motion considered are: Brownian motion in a medium with nonlinear friction; the critical analysis of three forms of the relevant Langevin and Fokker-Planck equations (Ito’s form, Stratonovich’s form, and the kinetic form); the Smoluchowski equations and master equations for different cases; two methods of transition from master equation to Fokker-Planck equation; master equations for one-step processes; traditional and nontraditional definition of transition probabilities; evolution of free energy and entropy in Brownian motion; Lyapunov functionals. The following particular examples are considered: Brownian motion in self-oscillatory systems; H-theorem for the van der Pol oscillator; S-theorem; oscillator with inertial nonlinearity; bifurcation of energy of the limiting cycle; oscillator with multistable stationary states; oscillators in discrete time; bifurcations of energy of the limiting cycle and the period of oscillations; criterion of instability upon transition to discrete time, based on the H-theorem; Brownian motion of quantum atoms oscillators in the equilibrium electromagnetic field; Brownian motion in chemically reacting systems; partially ionised plasmas; the Malthus-Verhulst process.
