Speaker : Shigeyoshi Ogawa (Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto Japan) A class of SPDEs called BPEs (1) transport phenomenon with infinite velocity (2) causality in stochastic mechanics 2014-11-03 (Mon) 14:00 - Seminar Room 617, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus) The BPE (Brownian particle equation) is an SPDE (stochastic partial differential equation) of the first order including the white noise, at least in its principal part, that is; $\partial_t u+\{a(t,x)+b(t,x)\dot{W}\}\partial_x u=\{A(t,x)+B(t,x)\dot{W}\}u+C(t,x)$, where $\dot{W}=\frac{d}{dt}W_t$ is the white noise, namely the derivative of the Brownian motion $W_t(\omega)$.--(1) The equation was first introduced in the article [2] ([3]) as a stochastic model for a transport phenomenon with infinite velocity of propagation. More precisely the model was expected to serve as a bridge between PDEs of two different types, that is the PDE of the first order on one hand and the PDE of parabolic type. At this point it is almost immediate to see that this expectation is realized not with the theory of $It\^{o}$ Calculus. In fact, suppose the multiplication terms $\partial_xu \times \dot{W}$ and $Bu \times \dot{W}$ in [1] are interpreted by $It\^{o}$ integral and take the expectation on both sides of the equation (1), then we will see that the average $v(t,x)=E[u(t,x,\omega)]$ comes to satisfy not a parabolic equation but the following PDE of first order (2) and our expectation is failled; $\partial_t v+a(t,x)\partial_x v=A(t,x)v+C(t,x)$,--(2) Our aim of constructing the bridge between two PDEs of different categories is realized in the framework of a calculus called {$\it noncausal calculus$} which is based on the author's {$\it noncausal integral$} ([1],[4] -- [9],[10] etc.). In the two talks, we aim to show some remarkable properties of the BPE by limitting our discussion to the Cauchy problem of the BPE; In the first talk, we establish the fundametal results on the existence and uniqueness of classical solutions of Cauchy problem and on the relation with parabolic equations. We notice that the discussion is also accompanied with a brief introduction to the noncausal calculus. In the second talk, we will show some applications of the BPE theory to the theory of stochastic calculus and to some nonlinear PDEs in mathematical physics ([11]). We will also refer to the very recent relevant topics in stochastic calculus ([12]--[15]).
