Stability and random attractors for a reaction-diffusion equation with multiplicative noise. (English) Zbl 1011.37031
Summary: We study the asymptotic behaviour of a reaction-diffusion equation, and prove that the addition of multiplicative white noise (in the sense of Itô) stabilizes the stationary solution \(x\equiv 0\). We show in addition that this stochastic equation has a finite-dimensional random attractor, and from our results conjecture a possible bifurcation scenario.
