ABSTRACT The theory of stochastic differential equations is used to give a new description of a stochastic NMR experiment. It replaces an earlier approach, which was based on Wiener's orthogonal expansion of the stochastic response. For the first time, the saturation behaviour in cross and power spectra is predicted correctly. A numerical experiment confirms the theoretical results. The relative signal intensities in a stochastic resonance spectrum are calculated and compared with those obtained in a slow passage experiment. Conditions for equal relative intensities are given for various experimental situations.

    ABSTRACT: Pulsed stochastic excitation of a two-level system described by Bloch equations is studied. An equation for the average powers of the components of the state vector of the system is obtained on the basis of the theory of stochastic differential equations, and solved. The dynamical and nonlinear properties of the response of a system under pulsed stochastic resonance conditions are analyzed and the results are compared with the corresponding stationary state. The results obtained can be used in spectroscopy and for analysis of nonlinear filters based on the saturation effect and intended for processing rf and light range signals.

    ABSTRACT: Consider a particle moving on the surface of the unit sphere in R 3 and heading towards a specific destination with a constant average speed, but subject to random deviations. The motion is modeled as a diffusion with drift restricted to the surface of the sphere. Expressions are set down for various characteristics of the process including expected travel time to a cap, the limiting distribution, the likelihood ratio and some estimates for parameters appearing in the model.
