Abstract

Stochastic partial differential equations arise in many fields, such as biology, physics, engineering, and economics, in which random phenomena play a crucial role. Recently many researchers have been interested in studying the effect of stochastic perturbations on hyperbolic conservation laws and other related nonlinear PDEs possessing shock wave solutions, with particular emphasis on existence and uniqueness questions (well-posedness). In this talk I will attempt to review parts of this activity.
