Benjamin Gess and Michael Scheutzow: Synchronization by noise Gess, Benjamin


We present recent results on synchronization by noise. That is, we introduce su\0cient con- ditions under which weak random attractors for random dynamical systems consist of single random points. These conditions focus on SDE with additive noise, for which they are also essentially necessary. In addition, we provide su\0cient conditions for the existence of a minimal weak point random attractor consisting of a single random point. The analysis passes through the statistical equilibrium, negativity of the top Lyapunov exponent and a local stable manifold result. As a model example, we prove synchronization by noise for an SDE with drift given by a (multidimensional) double-well potential and additive noise. This is joint work with Franco Flandoli.
