Abstract

The response of a Duffing oscillator subject to a periodic forcing with slowly and stochastically modulated frequency is analyzed numerically. The results of both moment and cumulant-based stochastic reductions are compared to Monte Carlo simulations. It is shown how the explicit characterization of higher-order central moments of the (Gaussian) noise source and the periodic nature of the forcing enable a reliable reduction strategy providing a faithful description of the mean behavior of stochastic solutions. The reduced model is then used to illustrate how a large noise level and fast frequency drift may combine to sustain a strong response that is normally associated to resonance in the noiseless static case.
