Consider a system of $n$ weakly interacting particles driven by independent Brownian motions. In many instances, it is well known that the empirical measure converges to the solution of a partial differential equation, usually called McKean-Vlasov or Fokker-Planck equation, as $n$ tends to infinity. We propose a relatively new approach to show this convergence by directly studying the stochastic partial differential equation that the empirical measure satisfies for each fixed $n$. Under a… Expand

Uniform approximation of 2d Navier-Stokes equation by stochastic interacting particle systems
We consider an interacting particle system modeled as a system of N stochastic differential equations driven by Brownian motions. We prove that the (mollified) empirical process converges, uniformlyExpand
Uniform Approximation of 2 Dimensional Navier-Stokes Equation by Stochastic Interacting Particle Systems
It is proved that the (mollified) empirical process converges, uniformly in time and space variables, to the solution of the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equation written in vorticity form. Expand


Long time dynamics and disorder-induced traveling waves in the stochastic Kuramoto model
The aim of the paper is to address the long time behavior of the Kuramoto model of mean-field coupled phase rotators, subject to white noise and quenched frequencies. We analyse the influence of theExpand
A Note on Dynamical Models on Random Graphs and Fokker–Planck Equations
We address the issue of the proximity of interacting diffusion models on large graphs with a uniform degree property and a corresponding mean field model, i.e., a model on the complete graph with aExpand
Large Deviations for Stochastic Processes
The notes are devoted to results on large deviations for sequences of Markov processes following closely the book by Feng and Kurtz ([FK06]). We outline how convergence of Fleming's nonlinearExpand
A Hilbertian approach for fluctuations on the McKean-Vlasov model
Abstract We consider the sequence of fluctuation processes associated with the empirical measures of the interacting particle system approximating the d -dimensional McKean-Vlasov equation and proveExpand
Uniform convergence of proliferating particles to the FKPP equation
In this paper we consider a system of Brownian particles with proliferation whose rate depends on the empirical measure. The dependence is more local than a mean field one and has been calledExpand
Limit Theorems for Certain Diffusion Processes with Interaction
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the limit theorems for certain diffusion processes with interaction. The chapter studies the central limit theorem and the large deviation problem for U n inExpand
Long time dynamics for interacting oscillators on graphs.
The stochastic Kuramoto model defined on a sequence of graphs is analyzed: the emphasis is posed on the relationship between the mean field limit, the connectivity of the underlying graph and theExpand
Synchronization and random long time dynamics for mean-field plane rotators
We consider the natural Langevin dynamics which is reversible with respect to the mean-field plane rotator (or classical spin XY) measure. It is well known that this model exhibits a phase transitionExpand
The Master Equation and the Convergence Problem in Mean Field Games
The paper studies the convergence, as N tends to infinity, of a system of N coupled Hamilton-Jacobi equations, the Nash system. This system arises in differential game theory. We describe the limitExpand
On the McKean‐Vlasov Limit for Interacting Diffusions
For a system of diffusions in a domain of Rd with long-range weak interaction the behavior of the associated empirical process is studied. Under mild growth and smoothness assumptions on the driftExpand
