An Introduction to Stochastic PDEs

  title={An Introduction to Stochastic PDEs},
  author={Martin Hairer},
  journal={arXiv: Probability},
These notes are based on a series of lectures given first at the University of Warwick in spring 2008 and then at the Courant Institute in spring 2009. It is an attempt to give a reasonably self-contained presentation of the basic theory of stochastic partial differential equations, taking for granted basic measure theory, functional analysis and probability theory, but nothing else. The approach taken in these notes is to focus on semilinear parabolic problems driven by additive noise. These… 
Stochastic PDEs, Regularity Structures, and Interacting Particle Systems
These lecture notes grew out of a series of lectures given by the second named author in short courses in Toulouse, Matsumoto, and Darmstadt. The main aim is to explain some aspects of the theory of
An introduction to singular stochastic PDEs: Allen-Cahn equations, metastability and regularity structures
These notes have been prepared for a series of lectures given at the Sarajevo Stochastic Analysis Winter School, from January 28 to February 1, 2019. There already exist several excellent lecture
A solution theory for a general class of SPDEs
This article presents a way of treating stochastic partial differential equations with multiplicative noise by rewriting them as stochastically perturbed evolutionary equations in the sense of Picard and McGhee (Partial differential equations: a unified Hilbert space approach, DeGruyter, Berlin, 2011), which allows for an effective treatment of coupled systems of SPDEs.
A BSDEs approach to pathwise uniqueness for stochastic evolution equations
We prove strong well-posedness for a class of stochastic evolution equations in Hilbert spacesH when the drift term is Hölder continuous. This class includes examples of semilinear stochastic damped
Hörmander’s theorem for semilinear SPDEs
We consider a broad class of semilinear SPDEs with multiplicative noise driven by a finite-dimensional Wiener process. We show that, provided that an infinite-dimensional analogue of Hormander's
Sampling conditioned hypoelliptic diffusions
A series of recent articles introduced a method to construct stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) which are invariant with respect to the distribution of a given conditioned diffusion.
Malliavin Calculus and Density for Singular Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
We study Malliavin differentiability of solutions to sub-critical singular parabolic stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) and we prove the existence of densities for a class of singular
Introduction to SPDEs from Probability and PDE
The course will aim to provide an introduction to stochastic PDEs from the classical perspective, that being a mixture of stochastic analysis and PDE analysis. We will focus in particular on the
Singular perturbations to semilinear stochastic heat equations April 1 , 2010
We consider a class of singular perturbations to the stochastic heat equation or semilinear variations thereof. The interesting feature of these perturbations is that, as the small parameter ε tends
A microlocal approach to renormalization in stochastic PDEs
We present a novel framework for the study of a large class of nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations (PDEs), which is inspired by the algebraic approach to quantum field theory. The

Convergence of probability measures
The author's preface gives an outline: "This book is about weakconvergence methods in metric spaces, with applications sufficient to show their power and utility. The Introduction motivates the
Uniqueness of solutions of stochastic differential equations
It follows from a theorem of Veretennikov [4] that (1) has a unique strong solution, i.e. there is a unique process x(t), adapted to the filtration of the Brownian motion, satisfying (1).
Approximations to the Stochastic Burgers Equation
This article is devoted to the numerical study of various finite-difference approximations to the stochastic Burgers equation, and forms a number of conjectures for more general classes of equations, supported by numerical evidence.
On nonseparable Banach spaces
Combining combinatorial methods from set theory with the functional structure of certain Banach spaces we get some results on the isomorphic structure of nonseparable Banach spaces. The conclusions

Modulation Equations: Stochastic Bifurcation in Large Domains
We consider the stochastic Swift-Hohenberg equation on a large domain near its change of stability. We show that, under the appropriate scaling, its solutions can be approximated by a periodic wave,

Convergence of Random Processes and Limit Theorems in Probability Theory
The convergence of stochastic processes is defined in terms of the so-called “weak convergence” (w. c.) of probability measures in appropriate functional spaces (c. s. m. s.).Chapter 1. Let $\Re $ be
