Article
Eternal inflation is studied in the context of warm inflation. We focus on different tools to analyze the effects of dissipation and the presence of a thermal radiation bath on the fluctuation-dominated regime, for which the self-reproduction of Hubble-regions can take place. The tools we explore are the threshold inflaton field and threshold numbe...

Simplified neuronal models capture the essence of the electrical activity of a generic neuron, besides being more interesting from the computational point of view when compared to higher dimensional models such as the Hodgkin-Huxley one. In this work, we propose a generalized resonate-and-fire model described by a generalized Langevin equation that...

System-environment interactions are intrinsically nonlinear and dependent on the interplay between many degrees of freedom. The complexity may be even more pronounced when one aims to describe biologically motivated systems. In that case, it is useful to resort to simplified models relying on effective stochastic equations. A natural consideration...
Conference Paper
The effects of dissipation on the power spectrum of non-isentropic inflationary type of models, or warm inflation, are studied. The regimes of cold and warm inflation are established for different polynomial chaotic inflaton potentials. The parameter space compatible with the observational measurements from the cosmic microwave background radiation...
Article
We determine the power spectrum for inflation models covering all regimes from cold (isentropic) to warm (nonisentropic) inflation. We work in the context of the stochastic inflation approach, which can nicely describe both types of inflationary regimes concomitantly. A throughout analysis is carried out to determine the allowed parameter space for...

The influence of nonlinear effects in stochastic equations of motion with both additive and multiplicative noises is studied. Non-Markovian stochastic dynamics are compared with their corresponding Markovian (local approximations). Non-Markovian effects are implemented through Ornstein-Uhlenbeck and exponential damped harmonic dissipative kernels.
Article
Full-text available
Non-Markovian stochastic Langevin-like equations of motion are compared to their corresponding Markovian (local) approximations. The validity of the local approximation for these equations, when contrasted with the fully nonlocal ones, is analyzed in detail. The conditions for when the equation in a local form can be considered a good approximation...
Article
The reliability and precision of numerically solving stochastic non-Markovian equations by standard numerical codes, more specifically, with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta routine for solving differential equations, is gauged by comparing the results obtained from analytical solutions for the equations. The results for different prescriptions for tra...
Article
Full-text available
The nonequilibrium dynamics of an homogeneous scalar field is studied using Langevin equations. Microscopic derivations based on quantum field theory methods can lead to complicated nonlocal equations of motion. Here we study, numerically, the results obtained by appropriately approximating these equations in a local form (the Markovian approximati...
