Coherence of oscillations in the weak-noise limit — •Benedikt Remlein, Volker Weissmann, and Udo Seifert — II. Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Stuttgart, 70550 Stuttgart, Germany

In a noisy environment, oscillations lose their coherence, which can be characterized by a quality factor. We determine this quality factor for oscillations arising from a driven Fokker-Planck dynamics along a periodic one-dimensional potential analytically in the weak-noise limit. With this expression, we can prove for this continuum model the analog of an upper bound that has been conjectured for the coherence of oscillations in discrete Markov network models. We show that our approach can also be adapted to motion along a noisy two-dimensional limit cycle. Specifically, we apply our scheme to the noisy Stuart-Landau oscillator and the thermodynamically consistent Brusselator as a simple model for a chemical clock. Our approach thus complements the fairly sophisticated extant general framework based on techniques from Hamilton-Jacobi theory with which we compare our results numerically [1].
