Burgers Equation with Random Forcing

Burgers Equation with Random Forcing

Series: Mathematics Colloquium
Location: Math 501
Presenter: Yuri Bakhtin, Courant Institute

The Burgers equation is a basic nonlinear evolution PDE of Hamilton--Jacobi type related to fluid dynamics and growth models.  I will talk about the ergodic theory of randomly forced Burgers equation in noncompact setting. The basic objects are one-sided infinite minimizers of random action (in the inviscid case) and polymer measures on one-sided infinite trajectories (in the positive viscosity case). This is joint work with Eric Cator, Kostya Khanin, and Liying Li.
