Noise is often used in the study of open systems, such as in classical Brownian motion and in Quantum Dynamics, to model the influence of the environment. However generalizing results from Go¨del and Chaitin in mathematics suggests that systems that are sufficiently rich that self-referencing is possible contain intrinsic randomness. We argue that this is relevant to modelling the universe, even though it is by definition a closed system. We show how a three-dimensional process-space may arise, as a Prigogine dissipative structure, from a non-geometric order-disorder model driven by, what is termed, self-referential noise. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We are dealing with the Navier-Stokes equation in a bounded regular domain $$\mathcal {O}$$ of $$\mathbb {R}^2$$ , perturbed by an additive Gaussian noise $$\partial w^{Q_\delta }/\partial t$$ , which is white in time and colored in space. We assume that the correlation radius of the noise gets...

    In this paper, we consider nonlinear diffusion processes driven by space-time white noises, which have an interpretation in terms of partial differential equations. For a specific choice of coefficients, they correspond to the Landau equation arising in kinetic theory. The main goal of the paper...
