Soliton dynamics for the Korteweg-de Vries equation with multiplicative homogeneous noise
Participant : Arnaud Debussche.
In this joint work  with A. de Bouard (CMAP, Polytechnique), we consider a randomly perturbed Korteweg-de Vries equation. The perturbation is a random potential depending both on space and time, with a white noise behavior in time, and a regular, but stationary behavior in space. We investigate the dynamics of the soliton of the KdV equation in the presence of this random perturbation, assuming that the amplitude of the perturbation is small. We estimate precisely the exit time of the perturbed solution from a neighborhood of the modulated soliton, and we obtain the modulation equations for the soliton parameters. We moreover prove a central limit theorem for the dispersive part of the solution, and investigate the asymptotic behavior in time of the limit process.
