Fluctuating parameters look in quite a few actual platforms and phenomena. they often come both as random forces/sources, or advecting velocities, or media (material) parameters, like refraction index, conductivity, diffusivity, and so on. the well-known instance of Brownian particle suspended in fluid and subjected to random molecular bombardment laid the basis for contemporary stochastic calculus and statistical physics. different very important examples comprise turbulent delivery and diffusion of particle-tracers (pollutants), or non-stop densities (''oil slicks''), wave propagation and scattering in randomly inhomogeneous media, for example gentle or sound propagating within the turbulent atmosphere.

Such versions obviously render to statistical description, the place the enter parameters and suggestions are expressed by way of random methods and fields. the basic challenge of stochastic dynamics is to spot the basic features of method (its country and evolution), and relate these to the enter parameters of the process and preliminary data.

This increases a bunch of not easy mathematical concerns. it is easy to hardly ever clear up such platforms precisely (or nearly) in a closed analytic shape, and their suggestions count in a classy implicit demeanour at the initial-boundary facts, forcing and system's (media) parameters . In mathematical phrases such resolution turns into a sophisticated "nonlinear useful" of random fields and processes.

Part I provides mathematical formula for the elemental actual versions of delivery, diffusion, propagation and develops a few analytic tools.

Part II and III units up and applies the innovations of variational calculus and stochastic research, like Fokker-Plank equation to these types, to provide particular or approximate recommendations, or in worst case numeric methods. The exposition is prompted and proven with quite a few examples.

Part IV takes up matters for the coherent phenomena in stochastic dynamical platforms, defined by way of traditional and partial differential equations, like wave propagation in randomly layered media (localization), turbulent advection of passive tracers (clustering), wave propagation in disordered second and 3D media.

For the sake of reader I supply a number of appendixes (Part V) that supply many technical mathematical information wanted within the book.
