# The two-dimensional stochastic heat equation: renormalizing a multiplicative noise

@article{Bertini1998TheTS, title={The two-dimensional stochastic heat equation: renormalizing a multiplicative noise}, author={Lorenzo Bertini and Nicoletta Cancrini}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={1998}, volume={31}, pages={615-622} }

We study, in two space dimensions, the heat equation with a random potential that is a white noise in space and time. We introduce a regularization of the noise and prove that, by a suitable renormalization of the coupling coefficient, the covariance has a non-trivial limit when the regularization is removed. The limit is described in terms of a two-body Schrodinger operator with singular interaction.
