Abstract:

Stochastic Resonance is a nonlinear stochastic phenomenon which can cause a transfer of energy from a random process noise to a periodic signal over a certain range of signal and system parameters. It has been observed in many diverse natural and physical systems, and may be one means by which biological sensor systems amplify weak sensory signals for detection. This paper is an evaluation of the use of the Stochastic Resonance phenomenon as a tool for signal processing in terms of its processing gain. Detection, Nonlinear processing, Stochastic resonance.
