David Herzog : Supports of Degenerate Diffusion Processes: The Case of Polynomial Drift and Additive Noise



We discuss methods for computing supports of degenerate diffusion processes. We assume throughout that the diffusion satisfies a stochastic differential equation on Rd whose drift vector field X0 is ``polynomial'' and whose noise coefficients are constant. The case when each component of X0 is of odd degree is well understood. Hence we focus our efforts on X0 having at least one or more components of even degree. After developing methods to handle such cases, we shall apply them to specific examples, e.g. the Galerkin truncations of the Stochastic Navier-Stokes equation, to help establish ergodic properties of the resulting diffusion. One benefit to our approach is that, to prove such consequences, all we must do is compute certain Lie brackets.
