Stochastic models of fluid dynamics play a significant role in science, with numerous applications in e.g. climate science, geophysics and engineering. Moreover, sitting at the interface between probability theory, mathematical analysis and theory of parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations, these problems provide interesting and challenging mathematical complications. Motivated by the need from both the outside and inside of the mathematical community, our session will focus on the recent advances in stochastic fluid dynamics modeling, especially those derived from mathematical physics like plasma physics, fluid dynamics and thermomechanics. We aim to bring together researchers to discuss such models from both the theoretical and applied points of view, with topics including the regularity behavior of solutions, the stochastic dynamics and the stochastic numerical implementations.
