Mild Solutions and Harnack Inequality for Functional Stochastic Partial Differential Equations with Dini Drift

  • Xing HuangEmail author

The existence and uniqueness of a mild solution for a class of functional stochastic partial differential equations with multiplicative noise and a locally Dini continuous drift are proved. In addition, under a reasonable condition the solution is non-explosive. Moreover, Harnack inequalities are derived for the associated semigroup under certain global conditions, which is new even in the case without delay.
