Theory of equilibrium bispectra of nonlinear multiports: A langevin approach


Langevin’s dual equations are used for analyzing intrinsic noise of equilibrium multiports. Fluctuation-dissipation relations that link an electric bispectra matrix to a matrix of faradaic rectification coefficients are derived.
