Abstract: We consider stochastic perturbations of expanding maps of the interval where the noise can project the trajectory outside the interval. We estimate the escape rate as a function of the amplitude of the noise and compare it with the purely diffusive case. This is done under a technical hypothesis which corresponds to stability of the absolutely continuous invariant measure against small perturbations of the map. We also discuss in detail a case of instability and show how stability can be recovered by considering another invariant measure.
