A Support Theorem for a Generalized Burgers SPDE

  • Caroline Cardon-Weber
  • Annie Millet


When the initial condition u0 to a parabolic Burgers SPDE (containing a quadratic term) belongs to L q [0,1],2≤q≤∞, the trajectories of the solution u(t,x) a.s. belong to the space C([0,T],L q [0,1]). We characterize the support of the law of u in this space; the proof is based on an approximation of u by a sequence of stochastic processes obtained by replacing the Brownian sheet by linear adapted interpolations.
