Abstract

We obtain the location of the Hopf bifurcation threshold for a modified van der Pol oscillator, parametrically driven by a stochastic source and including delayed feedback in both position and velocity. We introduce a multiple scale expansion near threshold, and we solve the resulting Fokker-Planck equation associated with the evolution at the slowest time scale. The analytical results are compared with a direct numerical integration of the model equation. Delay modifies the Hopf frequency at threshold and leads to a stochastic bifurcation that is shifted relative to the deterministic limit by an amount that depends on the delay time, the amplitude of the feedback terms, and the intensity of the noise. Interestingly, stochasticity generally increases the region of stability of the limit cycle.
