Abstract
The response of a weaklydamped bistable oscillator to an external periodic force is considered
theoretically. In the approximation of weak signals we can write a linearized equation for the signal
and the corresponding nonlinear equation for the noise. These equations contain two unknown parameters:
an effective stiffness and an additional damping factor. In the case of the weaklydamped
bistable oscillator, considered here, the twodimensional Fokker–Planck equation corresponding to
the equation for the noise can be solved approximately by changing to a slow variable (“energy”)
and applying a method of successive approximation. This approach allows us to find the unknown
parameters and to calculate the amplitude ratio of the output and input signals, i.e. the gain factor.
