A conservative evolution of the Brownian excursion. (English) Zbl 1187.60063
Summary: We consider the problem of conditioning the Brownian excursion to have a fixed time average over the interval \([0,1]\) and we study an associated stochastic partial differential equation with reflection at 0 and with the constraint of conservation of the space average. The equation is driven by the derivative in space of a space-time white noise and contains a double Laplacian in the drift. Due to the lack of the maximum principle for the double Laplacian, the standard techniques based on the penalization method do not yield existence of a solution.
