Recent Developments in Numerical Methods for Stochastic Stokes and Navier-Stokes Equations
Prof. Xiao-Bing Feng
The University of Tennessee, USA

Besides the mathematical interests, stochastic Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations have been proposed to study turbulence flow under random forcing. Even in the simplest setting, their PDE solutions have very low regularity in time (and in space), which then poses a significant challenge for developing efficient and convergent numerical methods for the  stochastic Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations.  In particular,  the most natural and popular class of numerical methods for those equations, namely mixed finite element methods, had not been proven to work. In this talk I shall present some recent developments in mixed finite element methods for the Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations with multiplicative noise. I shall highlight the establishment of the continuous and discrete stochastic inf-sup conditions and the strong convergence not only for the velocity approximation but also for the pressure approximation, as well as the new analysis techniques used to obtain these results. Numerical experiments will also be presented to validate the theoretical results.
