[7] considered the nonlinear behavior of a bistable cantilever beam to broaden the spectrum and lower the frequency.
In the undriven deterministic case ([alpha] = [sigma] = 0), it is seen that the system is indeed bistable: two stable steady states coexist at y = [+ or -]1 and an unstable fixed point is present at y = 0.

where N(t) = [square root of (2D)] [xi](t) satisfies <N(t)N(t+[tau])> = 2D[delta](t), D is noise intensity, [xi](t) is additive Gaussian white noise (AGWN) with zero mean and unit variation, S(t) = A cos (2[pi][f.sub.d]t + [phi]) is the periodic signal with A, [f.sub.d], and [phi] being the amplitude, the driving frequency, and the phase, respectively, [gamma] is the damping function, and a and b are the bistable potential parameters with positive real values.

They found that when an asymmetric bistable system is driven by a signal-modulated noise, stochastic resonance appeared, in contrast to the additive noise, new characteristics emerge, and their results were in agreement with experiments.

One of the papers in the issue is on the convergence of the solutions of the bistable reaction-diffusion equations in two-dimensional spaces to a pair of diverging traveling curved fronts.
