The Burgers equation is one of the basic nonlinear evolutionary PDEs. The study of ergodic properties of the Burgers equation with random forcing began in 1990's. The natural approach is based on the analysis of optimal paths in the random landscape generated by the random force potential.

This weekly seminar welcomes many visiting speakers and also provides a forum for results by Princeton/IAS faculty and graduate students. While most talks focus on one of the two namesake topics, there tends to be overlap with other fields. Most recently, talks have included material on celestial mechanics, number theory, probability theory, the Schrodinger equation, spectral theory and Teichmueller theory.
