Effective Markovian description of systems with coloured noise
Recent theoretical work on active matter [1,2] suggests that the appropriate theoretical description can be reduced to that of coloured noise. It thus seems worthy to remind ourselves of the coloured noise problem, and the much sought approximations to reduce it to the effective Markovian description. I will review two such approximations and briefly discuss the implications for the active matter.
