About these proceedings
This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications NONLINEAR STOCHASTIC PDEs: HYDRODYNAMIC LIMIT AND BURGERS' TURBULENCE is based on the proceedings of the period of concentration on Stochas tic Methods for Nonlinear PDEs which was an integral part of the 1993- 94 IMA program on "Emerging Applications of Probability." We thank Tadahisa Funaki and Wojbor A. Woyczynski for organizing this meeting and for editing the proceedings. We also take this opportunity to thank the National Science Foundation and the Army Research Office, whose financial support made this workshop possible. A vner Friedman Willard Miller, Jr. xiii PREFACE A workshop on Nonlinear Stochastic Partial Differential Equations was held during the week of March 21 at the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications at the University of Minnesota. It was part of the Special Year on Emerging Applications of Probability program put together by an organizing committee chaired by J. Michael Steele. The selection of topics reflected personal interests of the organizers with two areas of emphasis: the hydrodynamic limit problems and Burgers' turbulence and related models. The talks and the papers appearing in this volume reflect a number of research directions that are currently pursued in these areas.
