In it hell and heaven meet.

Homogenization with large spatial random potential
We further investigate the effect on the heating of other physical parameters such as the photospheric magnetic field and the generation of Alfv´en waves with a monochromatic and white noise spectrum in the photosphere.
The role of torsional Alfven waves in coronal heating
Gaussian space-time white noise has covariance E [W (T , X )W (S, Y )] = δ (T − S )δ (Y − X ), and p(T , X ) = (2πT )−1 exp(−X 2/2T ) is the standard heat kernel. A detailed description of this stochastic PDE and the class of initial data for which it is well-posed can be found in [5, 13], or the review .

It is only after the arrival of the heating front at the outer disc that the accretion rate onto the white dwarf increases significantly.

The heat is stored in the non-degenerate ions in the white dwarf interior, which is kept nearly isothermal due to the efficient heat conduction by degenerate electrons.

Another very interesting recent development is the application of the calculations of compressional heating of accreting white dwarfs in CVs (Townsley & Bildsten 2004) to the accreting white dwarfs in AM CVn systems (see Bildsten, these proceedings).

For end-point estimates (i.e., a weaker type of estimates than the type we consider, which are pathwise) it is proven in that the optimal convergence rate of a time discretization for the heat equation in one dimension with additive space-time white noise based on n equidistant time steps is n− 1 4 (see Remark 8.2).
Pathwise Holder convergence of the implicit Euler scheme for semi-linear SPDEs with multiplicative noise
The first pathwise uniform convergence result of the implicit Euler scheme seems to be due to Gy¨ongy , who obtains convergence rate n− 1 8 for the 1D stochastic heat equation with multiplicative space-time white noise.
