Approximate FokkerPlanck equation for a singlemode laser driven by quadratic pump noise and quantum noise with crosscorrelation between real and imaginary parts of noise
Abstract
A singlemode laser noise model driven by quadratic pump noise and quantum noise with crosscorrelation between the real and imaginary parts of the noises is proposed. The approximate FokkerPlanck equation (AFPE) of the model for the laser phase and the laser amplitude is derived. It is found that the laser phase is controlled intensively by the correlation between the real and imaginary parts of the pump noise and that of the quantum noise. The correlation between the real and imaginary parts of quantum noise {lambda}{sub q} tends to lead the laser phase to be locked at some values and the correlation between the real and imaginary parts of the pump noise {lambda}{sub p} tends to destroy or confine the laser phase lock. Quantitative results are presented and discussed in detail. As an important application of the abovementioned results, we take a phase lock approximation to get a Langevin equation for the laser field amplitude and an AFPE of the laser intensity.

We consider a quantum mechanical system represented in phase space (referred to hereafter as “Wigner space”), coupled to a harmonic oscillator bath. We derive quantum hierarchal FokkerPlanck (QHFP) equations not only in real time but also in imaginary time, which represents an inverse temperature. This is an extension of a previous work, in which we studied a spinboson system, to a Brownian system. It is shown that the QHFP in real time obtained from a correlated thermal equilibrium state of the total system possesses the same form as those obtained from a factorized initial state.

Bistability driven by weakly colored Gaussian noise: The FokkerPlanck boundary layer and mean firstpassage times
We develop a singular perturbation approach to the problem of firstpassage times for nonMarkovian processes driven by Gaussian colored noise near the whitenoise limit. In particular we treat the problem of overdamped tunneling in a bistable quartic potential in the presence of Gaussian noise of short correlation time tau. The correct treatment of the absorbing boundary yields a lowestorder correction proportional to tau/sup 1/2/ with a proportionality constant involving the Milne extrapolation length for the FokkerPlanck equation, given in terms of the Riemann zeta function. 
Projection operator approach to the FokkerPlanck equation. II. Dichotomic and nonlinear Gaussian noise
Two models for the Freedericksz transition in a fluctuating magnetic field are considered: one is based on a dichotomic and the other on a nonlinear Gaussian noise. Both noises are characterized by finite correlation time /tau/. It is shown that the linear response assumption leading to the best FokkerPlanck approximation in the dichotomic and nonlinear Gaussian cases can be trusted only up to the order /tau//sup 1/ and /tau//sup 0/, respectively. The role of the corrections to the linear response approximation is discussed and it is shown how to replace the nonFokkerPlanck terms stemming from these corrections with equivalent termsmore » 
Projection approach to the FokkerPlanck equation. I. Colored Gaussian noise
It is shown that the FokkerPlanck operator can be derived via a projectionperturbation approach, using the repartition of a more detailed operator L into a perturbation L/sub 1/ and an unperturbed part L/sub 0/. The standard FokkerPlanck structure is recovered at the second order in L/sub 1/, whereas the perturbation terms of higher order are shown to provoke the breakdown of this structure. To get rid of these higher order terms, a key approximation, local linearization (LL), is made. In general, to evaluate at the second order in L/sub 1/ the exact expression of the diffusion coefficient which simulates themore »
