We consider the stochastic Allen-Cahn equation driven by mollified space-time white noise. We show that, as the mollifier is removed, the solutions converge weakly to 0, independently of the initial condition. If the intensity of the noise simultaneously converges to 0 at a sufficiently fast rate, then the solutions converge to those of the deterministic equation. At the critical rate, the limiting solution is still deterministic, but it exhibits an additional damping term. 

The Sharp interface limit for the stochastic Cahn-Hilliard equation

We study the two and three dimensional stochastic Cahn-Hilliard equation in the sharp interface limit, where the positive parameter $\epsilon$ tends to zero, which measures the width of transition

Generation of fine transition layers and their dynamics for the stochastic Allen--Cahn equation

We study an e-dependent stochastic Allen-Cahn equation with a mild random noise on a bounded domain in R n , n ≥ 2. Here e is a small positive parameter that represents formally the thickness of the

Well-posedness à la Friedrichs is proved for a class of degenerate Kolmogorov equations associated to stochastic Allen–Cahn equations with logarithmic potential. The thermodynamical consistency of

We study spectral Galerkin approximations of an Allen--Cahn equation over the two-dimensional torus perturbed by weak space-time white noise of strength $\sqrt{\varepsilon}$. We introduce a Wick

Singular limits for stochastic equations

We study singular limits of stochastic evolution equations in the interplay of disappearing strength of the noise and increasing roughness of the noise, so that the noise in the limit would be too

We study the stochastic mass-conserving Allen-Cahn equation posed on a bounded two-dimensional domain with additive spatially smooth space-time noise. This equation associated with a small positive

We deal with a class of reaction-diffusion equations, in space dimension d > 1, perturbed by a Gaussian noise ∂w δ /∂t which is white in time and colored in space. We assume that the noise has a

We study the action minimization problem that is formally associated to phase transformation in the stochastically perturbed Allen‐Cahn equation. The sharp‐interface limit is related to (but

We study the limiting behavior of solutions to appropriately rescaled versions of the Allen-Cahn equation, a simplified model for dynamic phase transitions. We rigorously establish the existence in

We consider a coupled bistable $N$-particle system on $\mathbb{R}^N$ driven by a Brownian noise, with a strong coupling corresponding to the synchronised regime. Our aim is to obtain sharp estimates

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
