New Results for Stochastic PDEs

Recent developments in the analysis of stochastic PDEs are highlighted by the speakers in this minisymposium. Rigorous connections between interacting particle systems and measured valued process formally described by parabolic stochastic PDEs with multiplicative noise are discussed, as well as issues of wavefront propagation in such models. Complimentary results for wavefront propagation in hydrodynamic equations, in particular the Burgers equation, with random data are also presented, and a study of the effect of noise on bifurcations in spatially distributed systems is described.
