An analysis on the existence of bistability in the hybrid reaction model for CO oxidation in finite systems is demonstrated. As such, numerical evidence to indicate the existence of an effective potential characterizing this behavior is provided. This potential is determined by exact kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) simulation analysis, but reasonable estimate available from approximate master equations, and from Fokker-Planck equations which are obtained from further approximation of the master equations.
