Abstract: Herein we present a calculation of the mean first-passage time for a bistable one-dimensional system driven by Gaussian colored noise of strength D and correlation time ¿c. We obtain quantitative agreement with experimental analog-computer simulations of this system. We disagree with some of the conclusions reached by previous investigators. In particular, we demonstrate that all available approximations that lead to a state-dependent diffusion coefficient lead to the same result for small D¿c.
