Oscillator with random trichotomous mass
In addition to the case usually considered of a stochastic harmonic oscillator subject to an external random force (Brownian motion in a parabolic potential) or to a random frequency and random damping, we consider an oscillator with random mass subject to an external periodic force, where the molecules of a surrounding medium, which collide with a Brownian particle are able to adhere to the oscillator for a random time, changing thereby the oscillator mass. The fluctuations of mass are modelled as trichotomous noise. Using the Shapiro–Loginov procedure for splitting the correlators, we found the first two moments. It turns out that the second moment is a non-monotonic function of the characteristics of noise and periodic signal, and for some values of these parameters, the oscillator becomes unstable.
