Synchronization and Averaging Principle Of Stationary Solutions For Stochastic Differential Equations


In this paper, we mainly construct a connection between synchronized systems and multi-scale equations, and then use the averaging principle as an intermediate step to obtain synchronization. This strategy solves the synchronization problem of dissipative stochastic differential equations, regardless of the structure of the noise. Moreover, the averaging principle of stationary solutions is also investigated, which is different from the averaging principle of solutions with the fixed initial values.
