Langevin Equations

  • Hannes Risken
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 18)


We first investigate the solution of the Langevin equation for Brownian motion. In Sect. 3.2 we treat a system of linear Langevin equations, followed in Sects. 3.3, 4 by general nonlinear Langevin equations.
