We study a class of dissipative PDEs perturbed by a bounded random kick force. It is assumed that the random force is non-degenerate, so that the Markov process obtained by the restriction of solutions to integer times has a unique stationary measure. The main result of the paper is a large deviation principle for occupation measures of the Markov...

The ergodic properties of the randomly forced Navier–Stokes system have been extensively studied in the literature during the last two decades. The problem has always been considered in bounded domains, in order to have, for example, suitable spectral properties for the Stokes operator, to ensure some compactness properties for the resolving operat...

We consider the 1D nonlinear Schrödinger equation with bilinear control. In the case of Neumann boundary conditions, local exact controllability of this equation near the ground state has been proved by Beauchard and Laurent [BL10]. In this paper, we study the case of Dirichlet boundary conditions. To establish the controllability of the linearised...

The purpose of this paper is to establish the Donsker-Varadhan type large deviations principle (LDP) for the two-dimensional stochastic Navier-Stokes system. The main novelty is that the noise is assumed to be highly degenerate in the Fourier space. The proof is carried out by using a criterion for the LDP developed in arXiv:1410.6188 in a discrete...

We study the motion of a particle in a random time-dependent vector field defined by the 2D Navier–Stokes system with a noise. Under suitable non-degeneracy hypotheses we prove that the empirical measures of the trajectories of the pair (velocity field, particle) satisfy the LDP with a good rate function. Moreover, we show that the law of a unique...

We prove existence and uniqueness of the invariant measure and exponential mixing in the total-variation norm for a class of stochastic differential equations driven by degenerate compound Poisson processes. In addition to mild assumptions on the distribution of the jumps for the driving process, the hypotheses for our main result are that the corr...

In the paper arXiv:1802.03250, a criterion for exponential mixing is established for a class of random dynamical systems. In that paper, the criterion is applied to PDEs perturbed by a noise localised in the Fourier space. In the present paper, we show that, in the case of the complex Ginzburg-Landau (CGL) equation, that criterion can be used to co...

We consider the nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation (NLS) on a torus of arbitrary dimension. The equation is studied in presence of an external potential field whose time-dependent amplitude is taken as control. Assuming that the potential satisfies a saturation property, we show that the NLS equation is approximately controllable between any pair of...

We consider the 3D Navier-Stokes system driven by an additive finite-dimensional control force. The purpose of this paper is to show how the approximate controllability of this system can be derived from the approximate controllability of the Euler system linearised around some suitable trajectory. The proof presented here is shorter than the previ...

In the paper [KNS20], we studied the problem of mixing for a class of PDEs with a very degenerate bounded noise and established the uniqueness of stationary measure and its exponential stability in the dual-Lipschitz metric. One of the hypotheses imposed on the problem in question required that the unperturbed equation should have exactly one globa...

We study the problems of controllability and ergodicity of the system of 3D primitive equations modeling large-scale oceanic and atmospheric motions. The system is driven by an additive force acting only on a finite number of Fourier modes in the temperature equation. We first show that the velocity and temperature components of the equations can b...

We study a class of discrete-time random dynamical systems with compact phase space. Assuming that the deterministic counterpart of the system in question possesses a dissipation property, its linearisation is approximately controllable, and the driving noise is bounded and has a decomposable structure, we prove that the corresponding family of Mar...

We study the asymptotic properties of the trajectories of a discrete-time random dynamical system in an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space. Under some natural assumptions on the model, we establish a multiplicative ergodic theorem with an exponential rate of convergence. The assumptions are satisfied for a large class of parabolic PDEs, including t...

In this paper, we consider a parabolic PDE on a torus of arbitrary dimension. The nonlinear term is a smooth function of polynomial growth of any degree. In this general setting, the corresponding Cauchy problem is not necessarily well posed. We show that the equation in question is approximately controllable by only a finite number of Fourier mode...

In this paper, we consider the 2D Navier-Stokes system driven by a white-in-time noise. We show that the occupation measures of the trajectories satisfy a large deviations principle, provided that the noise acts directly on all Fourier modes. The proofs are obtained by developing an approach introduced previously for discrete-time random dynamical...

We study the problem of exponential mixing and large deviations for discrete-time Markov processes associated with a class of random dynamical systems. Under some dissipativity and regularisation hypotheses for the underlying deterministic dynamics and a non-degeneracy condition for the driving random force, we discuss the existence and uniqueness...

Ce mémoire est composé de deux chapitres relativement indépendants. Le chapitre 1 est consacré à l’étude de quelques problèmes mathématiques issus de la théorie de la turbulence en hydrodynamique. Nos résultats portent principalement sur des questions liées au principe de grandes déviations (PGD), relation de Gallavotti–Cohen et ergodicité (existen...

We consider the damped nonlinear wave (NLW) equation driven by a spatially regular white noise. Assuming that the noise is non-degenerate in all Fourier modes, we establish a large deviations principle (LDP) for the occupation measures of the trajectories. The lower bound in the LDP is of a local type, which is related to the weakly dissipative nat...

We study a class of dissipative PDE's perturbed by an unbounded kick force. Under some natural assumptions, the restrictions of solutions to integer times form a homogeneous Markov process. Assuming that the noise is rough with respect to the space variables and has a non-degenerate law, we prove that the system in question satisfies a large deviat...

In the Eulerian approach, the motion of an incompressible fluid is usually described by the velocity field which is given by the Navier--Stokes system. The velocity field generates a flow in the space of volume-preserving diffeomorphisms. The latter plays a central role in the Lagrangian description of a fluid, since it allows to identify the traje...

We consider a quantum particle in a 1D interval submitted to a potential. The evolution of this particle is controlled using an external electric field. Taking into account the so-called polarizability term in the model (quadratic with respect to the control), we prove global exact controllability in a suitable space for arbitrary potential and arb...

We consider a system of an arbitrary number of \textsc{1d} linear Schr\"odinger equations on a bounded interval with bilinear control. We prove global exact controllability in large time of these $N$ equations with a single control. This result is valid for an arbitrary potential with generic assumptions on the dipole moment of the considered parti...

We consider the stochastic CGL equation $$ \dot u- \nu\Delta u+(i+a) |u|^2u =\eta(t,x),\;\;\; \text {dim} \,x=n, $$ where $\nu>0$ and $a\ge 0$, in a cube (or in a smooth bounded domain) with Dirichlet boundary condition. The force $\eta$ is white in time, regular in $x$ and non-degenerate. We study this equation in the space of continuous complex f...

We prove that the multidimensional Schr\"odinger equation is exactly controllable in infinite time near any point which is a finite linear combination of eigenfunctions of the Schr\"odinger operator. We prove that, generically with respect to the potential, the linearized system is controllable in infinite time. Applying the inverse mapping theorem...

In this paper, we study the problem of controllability of Schr\"odinger equation. We prove that the system is exactly controllable in infinite time to any position. The proof is based on an inverse mapping theorem for multivalued functions. We show also that the system is not exactly controllable in finite time in lower Sobolev spaces.

We consider a linear Schr\"odinger equation, on a bounded domain, with bilinear control, representing a quantum particle in an electric field (the control). Recently, Nersesyan proposed explicit feedback laws and proved the existence of a sequence of times $(t_n)_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ for which the values of the solution of the closed loop system con...

In this paper we obtain a stabilization result for both linear and nonlinear Schrödinger equations under generic assumptions on the potential. Then we consider the Schrödinger equations with a potential which has a random time-dependent amplitude. We show that if the distribution of the amplitude is sufficiently non-degenerate, then any trajectory...

We prove that the Schrödinger equation is approximately controllable in Sobolev spaces Hs, s>0, generically with respect to the potential. We give two applications of this result. First, in the case of one space dimension, combining our result with a local exact controllability property, we get the global exact controllability of the system in high...

In this paper we study the problem of ergodicity for the complex Ginzburg--Landau equation perturbed by an unbounded random kick-force. Randomness is introduced both through the kicks and through the times between the kicks. We show that the Markov process associated with the equation in question possesses a unique stationary distribution and satis...
