Renormalization group and stochastic PDEs

I will discuss some recent works on applying rigorous renormalization group methods to the study of stochastic PDEs. I will mainly focus on a model of turbulent transport by the shear flow. If time is enough I will also mention some other functional integral approaches to stochastic PDEs, and some recent developments of well-posedness problems of stochastic PDEs that require renormalizations.
