Applied Analysis Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Alexei Novikov, Amy Hanley, Leonid Berlyand, Mark Levi.

Speaker: Yuri Bakhtin, NYU

Abstract: I will talk about the ergodic theory of randomly forced Burgers equation (a basic nonlinear evolution PDE related to fluid dynamics and growth models) in the noncompact setting. The basic objects are one-sided infinite minimizers of random action (in the inviscid case) and polymer measures on one-sided infinite trajectories (in the positive viscosity case). I will try to stress the dynamics aspects of this joint work with Eric Cator, Kostya Khanin, and Liying Li.
