# Xue-Mei Li : Stirring the geodesics

In this talk, we discuss stochastic homogeneization on the Hopf fibration. Let us consider Berger's metrics on the three sphere, obtained by shrinking the Hopf circle directions by a factor epsilon. So we think of three spheres as two spheres attached at each point a circle. We consider a particle that is moved by two vector fields: a unit speed vector field, with respect to Berger's metrices, along the Hopf circle; and also a non-zero vector field in` \(S^2\) direction' with speed given by a one dimensional Brownian motion. In the limit of epsilon goes to zero, we obtain a Brownian motion on \(S^2\). The effective motion is obtained by moving a particle along a fast rotating horizontal direction.
