Intermittency for the wave and heat equations with fractional noise in time

30 Mar 2016  ·  Balan Raluca M., Conus Daniel ·

In this article, we consider the stochastic wave and heat equations driven by a Gaussian noise which is spatially homogeneous and behaves in time like a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst index $H>1/2$. The solutions of these equations are interpreted in the Skorohod sense... Using Malliavin calculus techniques, we obtain an upper bound for the moments of order $p\geq2$ of the solution. In the case of the wave equation, we derive a Feynman-Kac-type formula for the second moment of the solution, based on the points of a planar Poisson process. This is an extension of the formula given by Dalang, Mueller and Tribe [Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 360 (2008) 4681-4703], in the case $H=1/2$, and allows us to obtain a lower bound for the second moment of the solution. These results suggest that the moments of the solution grow much faster in the case of the fractional noise in time than in the case of the white noise in time. read more
