Abstract

We consider Brownian motion of a classical noninertial particle in a double-well potential with a high separation barrier. We obtain asymptotically exact expressions for Laplace images of the distribution function and reconstruct its time dependence under various initial conditions concerning decay problems for unstable and metastable states.
