Nonlinear stochastic wave equations: Blow-up of second moments in $L^2$-norm

By Pao-Liu Chow


The paper is concerned with the problem of explosive solutions for a class of nonlinear stochastic wave equations in a domain $\mathcal{D}\subset\mathbb{R}^d$ for $d\leq3$. Under appropriate conditions on the initial data, the nonlinear term and the noise intensity is proved in Theorem 3.1 that the $L^2$-norm of the solution will blow up at a finite time in the mean-square sense. An example is given to show an application of the theorem.Comment: Published in at the Annals of Applied Probability ( by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (
