A rare event in a bistable system. Left: time-dependent
probability density for a bistable system consisting of two
competitive species. Right: a single realization of the system is
simulated and plotted on top of the density. Note the scale of the
time for this problem, explaining the term 'rare event'; the
expected time for the system to switch its configuration is
(Plot info: each axis tick is 25 molecules and the contour levels
have been chosen by Matlab)
