Abstract: The Parameterisation Method is a powerful body of theory to compute the invariant manifolds of a dynamical system by looking for a parameterization of them in such a way that the dynamics on this manifold expressed in the coordinates of such parameterization writes as simply as possible. This methodology was foreseen by Guillamon and Huguet [SIADS, 2009 & J. Math. Neurosci, 2013] as a possible way of extending the domain of accuracy of the phase-reduction of periodic orbits. This fruitful approach, known as phase-amplitude reduction, has been fully developed during the last decade and provides an essentially complete understanding of deterministic oscillatory dynamics.
In this talk, we pursue the "simpler as possible" philosophy underlying the Parameterisation Method to develop an analogous phase-amplitude approach to stochastic oscillators. Main idea of our approach is to find a change of variables such that the system, when transformed to these variables, expresses in the mean as the deterministic phase-amplitude description. Then, we take advantage of the simplicity of this approach, to develop interesting objects with the aim of further clarifying the stochastic oscillation.
