Disorder-induced volatility of collective dynamics
``Disorder-induced volatility'' (DIV) describes the enhanced fluctuations of collective behaviors exhibited by bistable systems in the presence of a rapidly fluctuating external signal. At the DIV resonance, a defining characteristics is that the response of the system becomes uncorrelated with the external driving noise, making DIV resonance different from stochastic resonance. Numerical simulations and an analytical theory of a stochastic dynamical version of the Ising model on regular and random networks demonstrate the ubiquity and robustness of DIV, which is proposed as a possible cause of excess volatility in financial markets, of enhanced effective temperatures in a variety of out-of-equilibrium systems and of strong selective responses of immune systems of complex biological organisms.
