Random perturbations of 2-dimensional hamiltonian flows
We consider the motion of a particle in a periodic two dimensional flow perturbed by small (molecular) diffusion. The flow is generated by a divergence free zero mean vector field. The long time behavior corresponds to the behavior of the homogenized process - that is diffusion process with the constant diffusion matrix (effective diffusivity). We obtain the asymptotics of the effective diffusivity when the molecular diffusion tends to zero.
