# Applied Maths Seminar: Goldys -- Multidimensional stochastic Burgers equation

Ben Goldys, School of Mathematics and Statistics, The University of New South Wales

Wednesday 26th May 14:05-14:55pm, New Law School Seminar 030 (Building F10).

Stochastic Burgers equation is a well known tool to study the onset of shocks in gas
dynamics.  It also arises in the theory of random media including vortex lines in
superconductors, charge density waves and directed polymers.  While a scalar stochastic
Burgers equation has been intensely studied for many years, almost nothing is known
about its multidimensional version.  In this talk I will present some new results about
the viscous multidimensional stochastic Burgers equation and its vanishing viscosity
limit.
