Large Deviations for Stochastic Models of Two-Dimensional Second Grade Fluids

  • Jianliang Zhai
  • Tusheng Zhang


In this paper, we establish a large deviation principle for stochastic models of incompressible second grade fluids. The weak convergence method introduced by Budhiraja and Dupuis (Probab Math Statist 20:39–61, 2000) plays an important role.
