Abstract
The statistics of the first passage and nonlinear relaxation times are used to characterize the decay process of an unstable state for an electrically charged Brownian particle embedded in non-Markovian heat baths under the action of an external electric field. The relaxation process is described, in the overdamped regime, by a Generalized Langevin Equation (GLE) characterized by an arbitrary friction memory kernel, and a bistable potential profile. By applying the quasideterministic approach, t...
