On recent progress for the stochastic Navier Stokes equations

  title={On recent progress for the stochastic Navier Stokes equations},
  author={Jonathan C. Mattingly},
We give an overview of the ideas central to some recent developments in the ergodic theory of the stochastically forced Navier Stokes equations and other dissipative stochastic partial differential equations. Since our desire is to make the core ideas clear, we will mostly work with a specific example: the stochastically forced Navier Stokes equations. To further clarify ideas, we will also examine in detail a toy problem. A few general theorems are given. Spatial regularity, ergodicity… 

The Gaussian structure of the singular stochastic Burgers equation

Abstract We consider the stochastically forced Burgers equation with an emphasis on spatially rough driving noise. We show that the law of the process at a fixed time t, conditioned on no explosions,

Ergodicity for stochastic equation of Navier--Stokes type

In the first part of the note we analyze the long time behaviour of a two dimensional stochastic Navier-Stokes equation (N.S.E.) system on a torus with a degenerate, one dimensional noise. In

Some Tools and Results for Parabolic Stochastic Partial Differential Equations

The goal of these notes is to explain a set of ideas in stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE) which I have found useful. The notes are meant for graduate students, so they are not written

Ergodicity of the 2D Navier-Stokes equations with degenerate stochastic forcing

The stochastic 2D Navier-Stokes equations on the torus driven by degenerate noise are studied. We characterize the smallest closed invariant subspace for this model and show that the dynamics

Spectral gaps in Wasserstein distances and the 2D stochastic Navier–Stokes equations

We develop a general method to prove the existence of spectral gaps for Markov semigroups on Banach spaces. Unlike most previous work, the type of norm we consider for this analysis is neither a

Random Splitting of Fluid Models: Ergodicity and Convergence

. We introduce a family of stochastic models motivated by the study of nonequilibrium steady states of fluid equations. These models decompose the deterministic dynamics of interest into fundamental

Some recent progress in singular stochastic partial differential equations

. Stochastic partial differential equations are ubiquitous in mathematical modeling. Yet, many such equations are too singular to admit classical treatment. In this article we review some recent

Malliavin calculus and ergodic properties of highly degenerate 2D stochastic Navier--Stokes equation

The objective of this note is to present the results from the two recent papers. We study the Navier--Stokes equation on the two--dimensional torus when forced by a finite dimensional white Gaussian

Fine properties of stochastic evolution equations and their applications

In this work, we aim to study some fine properties for a class of nonlinear SPDE within the variational framework. The results consist of three main parts. In the first part, we study the asymptotic

The Small Scales of the Stochastic Navier–Stokes Equations Under Rough Forcing

We prove that the small scale structures of the stochastically forced Navier–Stokes equations approach those of the naturally associated Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process as the scales get smaller.



Exponential Convergence for the Stochastically Forced Navier-Stokes Equations and Other Partially Dissipative Dynamics

Abstract: We prove that the two dimensional Navier-Stokes equations possess an exponentially attracting invariant measure. This result is in fact the consequence of a more general ``Harris-like''

Stochastic Dissipative PDE's and Gibbs Measures

Abstract: We study a class of dissipative nonlinear PDE's forced by a random force ηomega(t,x), with the space variable x varying in a bounded domain. The class contains the 2D Navier–Stokes

Navier-Stokes Equations and Nonlinear Functional Analysis

Preface to the second edition Introduction Part I. Questions Related to the Existence, Uniqueness and Regularity of Solutions: 1. Representation of a Flow: the Navier-Stokes Equations 2. Functional

Generalized flows, intrinsic stochasticity, and turbulent transport

The study of passive scalar transport in a turbulent velocity field leads naturally to the notion of generalized flows, which are families of probability distributions on the space of solutions to

The Small Scales of the Stochastic Navier–Stokes Equations Under Rough Forcing

We prove that the small scale structures of the stochastically forced Navier–Stokes equations approach those of the naturally associated Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process as the scales get smaller.

Ergodic results for stochastic navier-stokes equation

In this paper we deal with the 2-D Navier-Stokes equation perturbed by a white noise force. Uniqueness of the invariant measure for this stochastic equation is obtained in a simpler way than in [6],

Ergodicity of 2D Navier–Stokes Equations with¶Random Forcing and Large Viscosity

Abstract:The stochastically forced, two-dimensional, incompressable Navier–Stokes equations are shown to possess an unique invariant measure if the viscosity is taken large enough. This result

An Elementary Proof of the Existence and Uniqueness Theorem for the Navier-Stokes Equations

Here ν is the viscosity, p is the pressure, and f1, f2 are the components of an external forcing which may be time-dependent. As our setting is periodic, the functions u1, u2, ∇p, f1, and f2 are all

Invariant measures for Burgers equation with stochastic forcing

In this paper we study the following Burgers equation du/dt + d/dx (u^2/2) = epsilon d^2u/dx^2 + f(x,t) where f(x,t)=dF/dx(x,t) is a random forcing function, which is periodic in x and white noise

The Dissipative Scale of the Stochastics Navier–Stokes Equation: Regularization and Analyticity

We prove spatial analyticity for solutions of the stochastically forced Navier–Stokes equation, provided that the forcing is sufficiently smooth spatially. We also give estimates, which extend to the
