We construct a planar smooth weakly mixing stationary random vector field with nonnegative components such that, with probability 1, the flow generated by this vector field does not have an asymptotic direction. Moreover, for all individual trajectories, the set of partial limiting directions coincides with those spanning the positive quadrant. A modified example shows that a particle in space-time weakly mixing positive velocity field does not necessarily have an asymptotic average velocity.

Strongly mixing smooth planar vector field without asymptotic directions
We use a Voronoi-type tessellation based on a compound Poisson point process to construct a strongly mixing stationary random smooth planar vector field with bounded nonnegative components such that,


Asymptotic Behaviour of Semi-Infinite Geodesics for Maximal Increasing Subsequences in the Plane
We consider for a given Poissonian cloud ω in ℝ2the maximal up/right path fromxto y(x, y∈ ℝ2), where maximal means that it contains as many points ofω as possible. We prove that with probability 1
Stationary random walks on the lattice
We consider translation invariant measures on configurations of nearest-neighbor arrows on the integer lattice. Following the arrows from each point on the lattice produces a family of semi-infinite
Geodesics in two-dimensional first-passage percolation
We consider standard first-passage percolation on Z 2 . Geodesics are nearest-neighbor paths in Z 2 , each of whose segments is time-minimizing. We prove part of the conjecture that doubly infinite
Asymptotic shapes for stationary first passage percolation
This paper deals with first passage percolation where the usual i.i.d. condition is weakened to stationarity (and ergodicity). The well known asymptotic shape result is known to extend to this case.
Stationary coalescing walks on the lattice
We consider translation invariant measures on families of nearest-neighbor semi-infinite walks on the integer lattice. We assume that once walks meet, they coalesce. In 2d, we classify the collective
Homogenization for¶Stochastic Hamilton-Jacobi Equations
Abstract:Homogenization asks whether average behavior can be discerned from partial differential equations that are subject to high-frequency fluctuations when those fluctuations result from a
Space-time stationary solutions for the Burgers equation
We construct space-time stationary solutions of the 1D Burgers equation with random forcing in the absence of periodicity or any other compactness assumptions. More precisely, for the forcing given
A shape theorem and semi-infinite geodesics for the Hammersley model with random weights
In this paper we will prove a shape theorem for the last passage percolation model on a two dimensional $F$-compound Poisson process, called the Hammersley model with random weights. We will also
Weakly mixing group actions: a brief survey and an example
The first part of the paper contains a survey of weakly mixing group actions of general group, and the second part discusses a special example of a weakly mixing action -- the SL(2,Z)-action on the
Homogenization of the G-equation with incompressible random drift in two dimensions
We study the homogenization limit of solutions to the G-equation with random drift. This Hamilton-Jacobi equation is a model for flame propagation in a turbulent fluid in the regime of thin flames.
