Title: Analytic descriptions of stochastic bistable systems under force ramp

Solving the two-state master equation with time-dependent rates, the ubiquitous driven bistable system, is a long-standing problem that does not permit a complete solution for all driving rates. We show an accurate approximation to this problem by considering the system in the control parameter regime. Moreover, the results are immediately applicable to a diverse range of bistable systems including single-molecule mechanics.
