An Introduction to the Analysis of Paths on a Riemannian by Daniel W. Stroock

By Daniel W. Stroock

This e-book goals to bridge the space among likelihood and differential geometry. It offers buildings of Brownian movement on a Riemannian manifold: an extrinsic one the place the manifold is discovered as an embedded submanifold of Euclidean area and an intrinsic one according to the "rolling" map. it really is then proven how geometric amounts (such as curvature) are mirrored via the habit of Brownian paths and the way that habit can be utilized to extract information regarding geometric amounts. Readers must have a powerful heritage in research with easy wisdom in stochastic calculus and differential geometry. Professor Stroock is a highly-respected specialist in likelihood and research. The readability and magnificence of his exposition extra increase the standard of this quantity. Readers will locate an inviting advent to the research of paths and Brownian movement on Riemannian manifolds.

Random Perturbation of PDEs and Fluid Dynamic Models: École d’Été de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XL – 2010

This quantity offers with the random perturbation of PDEs which lack well-posedness, mostly due to their non-uniqueness, now and again due to blow-up. the purpose is to teach that noise may perhaps repair strong point or hinder blow-up. this isn't a normal or easy-to-apply rule, and the speculation awarded within the publication is in truth a sequence of examples with a number of unifying principles.

Example text

Define measures pl and p2 by the formula pl(A) = p(r)p(A n F), p2(A) = µ(r`)µ(A n PC). It is easy to check that both the measures pl and p2 are invariant. Since p = p(r)p1 + (1- p(r))p2 and pi # p2i p cannot be extremal, a contradiction. 3 The strong law of large numbers We deduce now, as a probabilistic motivation of our study, important consequences of the existence of an invariant ergodic measure and of its uniqueness. Assume that Pt, t > 0, is a stochastically continuous Markovian semigroup on a Polish space (E, p) with invariant measure p.

1 and Step 3, the canonical dynamical system is weakly mixing. Thus there exists a set I C [0, +oo[ of relative measure 1 such that lim Pt(x, r) = ,t(r), ItI- +00 tEI for arbitrary x E E, r E 8(E). 6) does exist without any restriction on t. Let t - +oo, then there exists s = s(t) such that 3 < s(t) < 3 and s(t) E I, t - s(t) E I. This is true for sufficiently large t. 2 below. 2 Let r be a Bored set in [0, 1] with A(r) > a where A is the Lebesgue measure. Then there exists s E IF such that 1 - s E F.

Markov processes X corresponding to symmetric semigroups are important because they are reversible. This means that if the initial distribution of X(O) is p and T is an arbitrary positive number then the processes X(t), t E [0,T], and X (T - t), t E [0, T], have the same finite-dimensional distributions. see M. Fukushima [74, page 96]. Chapter 3 Ergodic and mixing measures This chapter is devoted to general properties of invariant measures for Markovian semigroups. We first prove the Krylov-Bogoliubov existence result and then give several characterizations of ergodic and mixing measures.
