Abstract

A model system exhibiting a large number of attractors is investigated under the influence of noise. Several methods for discriminating two qualitatively different regions of the noise intensity are presented, and the phenomenon of noise-induced preference of attractors is reported. Finally, the relevance of our findings for detection of multiple stable states of systems occurring in nature or in the laboratory is pointed out. [S1063-651X(99)01405-1].
