## Non-Gaussian, non-dynamical stochastic resonance    [PDF]

Krzysztof Szczepaniec, Bartlomiej Dybiec
The archetypal system demonstrating stochastic resonance is nothing more than a threshold triggered device. It consists of a periodic modulated input and noise. Every time an output crosses the threshold the signal is recorded. Such a digitally filtered signal is sensitive to the noise intensity. There exist the optimal value of the noise intensity resulting in the "most" periodic output. Here, we explore properties of the non-dynamical stochastic resonance in non-equilibrium situations, i.e. when the Gaussian noise is replaced by an $\alpha$-stable noise. We demonstrate that non-equilibrium $\alpha$-stable noises, depending on noise parameters, can either weaken or enhance the non-dynamical stochastic resonance.
