Title

# Attractors and expansion for Brownian flows

Abstract

We show that a stochastic flow which is generated by a stochastic differential equation on Rd with bounded volatility has a random attractor provided that the drift component in the direction towards the origin is larger than a certain strictly positive constant outside a large ball. Using a similar approach, we provide a lower bound for the linear growth rate of the inner radius of the image of a large ball under a stochastic flow in case the drift component in the direction away from the origin is larger than a certain strictly positive constant outside a large ball. To prove the main result we use chaining techniques in order to control the growth of the diameter of subsets of the state space under the flow.
