Abstract

The occurrence of stochastic transitions is investigated in the presence of triggers by turbulence noise and external events. The probability of observing the transition is calculated assuming that the global controlling parameters change in time. This is another important prediction of statistical theory in addition to the long time average. This explains the feature of transient response of the system with stochastic transitions. The interpretation of the experimental threshold database is discussed.
