Invariant measures for stochastic Cauchy problems with asymptotically unstable drift semigroup. (English) Zbl 1111.60044

Summary: We investigate existence and permanence properties of invariant measures for abstract stochastic Cauchy problems of the form \(dU(t) = (AU(t) + f) dt + B dW_H(t)\), governed by the generator \(A\) of an asymptotically unstable \(C_0\)-semigroup on a Banach space \(E\). Here \(f\) in \(E\) is fixed, \(W_H\) is a cylindrical Brownian motion over a separable real Hilbert space \(H\), and \(B\) is a bounded operator from \(H\) to \(E\). We show that if \(E\) does not contain a copy of \(c_0\), such invariant measures fail to exist generically but may exist for a dense set of operators \(B\). It turns out that many results on invariant measures which hold under the assumption of uniform exponential stability of \(S\) break down without this assumption.
