Title: Patch dynamics for macroscale modelling in one dimension
Author: Bunder, Judith; Roberts, Anthony John
Abstract: We discuss efficient macroscale modelling of microscale systems using patch dynamics. This pilot study effectively homogenises microscale varying diffusion in one dimension. The `equation free' approach requires that the microscale model be solved only on small spatial patches. Suitable boundary conditions ensure that these patches are well coupled. By centre manifold theory, an emergent closed model exists on the macroscale. Patch dynamics systematically approximates this macroscale model. The modelling is readily adaptable to higher dimensions and to reaction-diffusion equations.

Title: Averaging approximation to singularly perturbed nonlinear stochastic wave equations
Author: Lv, Yan; Roberts, Anthony John
Abstract: An averaging method is applied to derive effective approximation to a singularly perturbed nonlinear stochastic damped wave equation. Small parameter ν > 0 characterizes the singular perturbation, and νᵅ, 0 ≤ α ≤ 1/2, parametrizes the strength of the noise. Some scaling transformations and the martingale representation theorem yield the effective approximation, a stochastic nonlinear heat equation, for small ν in the sense of distribution.2011-12-31T13:30:00ZAverage and deviation for slow-fast stochastic partial differential equations

Title: Average and deviation for slow-fast stochastic partial differential equations
Author: Wang, Wei; Roberts, Anthony John
Abstract: Averaging is an important method to extract effective macroscopic dynamics from complex systems with slow modes and fast modes. This article derives an averaged equation for a class of stochastic partial differential equations without any Lipschitz assumption on the slow modes. The rate of convergence in probability is obtained as a byproduct. Importantly, the stochastic deviation between the original equation and the averaged equation is also studied. A martingale approach proves that the deviation is described by a Gaussian process. This gives an approximation to errors of order O(ε) instead of order O(√ε) attained in previous averaging.2011-12-31T13:30:00Z
