A Pregenerator for Burgers Equation¶Forced by Conservative Noise

  • Sigurd Assing


We consider the stationarity of a Burgers equation with an external random force of gradient type in one space dimension. The expected stationary measure is the white noise measure on the space of tempered distributions. As a consequence, the nonlinearity of the formal equation u t u u x u xx x is ill-defined. Introducing a pregenerator we can formulate a generalized martingale problem leading to a meaningful version of the formal equation which was an open problem.
