SUMMARY We consider noise-driven exit from a domain of attraction in a two-dimensional bistable system lacking detailed balance. Through analog and digital stochastic simulations, we find a theoretically predicted bifurcation of the most probable exit path as the parameters of the system are changed, and a corresponding nonanalyticity of the activation energy. We also investigate the extent to which the bifurcation is related to the local breaking of time-reversal invariance.
