Abstract

Abstract The non-markoffian generalization of Kramers' theory of activated rate processes is further generalized to the case of position dependent friction in the low-friction limit. A Smoluchowski equation for the action (or energy) of a particle moving in a potential under the influence of position dependent noise and damping Kernel is derived and is used to obtain the escape rate.
