Random Attractor for Stochastic Hindmarsh–Rose Equations with Additive Noise


For stochastic Hindmarsh–Rose equations with additive noises in the study of neurodynamics, the longtime and global pullback dynamics on a two-dimensional bounded domain is explored in this work. Using the additive transformation and by the sharp uniform estimates, we proved the pullback absorbing and the pullback asymptotically compact characteristics of the Hindmarsh–Rose random dynamical system in the \(L^2\) Hilbert space. It shows the existence of a random attractor for this random dynamical system.
