Abstract

Kramers' theory of activated processes yields expressions for the steady-state escape rate in the large- and small-friction limits and for Markovian dynamics. The present work extends this theory to non-Markovian dynamics and to the whole friction range. Kramers' results are recovered in the appropriate limits.
