Gibbsian dynamics and ergodicity for the stochastically forced Navier-Stokes equation. (English) Zbl 0994.60065
Authors’ abstract: We study stationary measures for the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equation with periodic boundary condition and random forcing. We prove uniqueness of the stationary measure under the condition that all “determining modes” are forced. The main idea behind the proof is to study the Gibbsian dynamics of the low modes obtained by representing the high modes as functionals of the time-history of the low modes.
