This special issue of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems-A is dedicated to Peter W. Bates on the occasion of his 60th birthday, and in recognition of his outstanding contributions to infinite dimensional dynamical systems and the mathematical theory of phase transitions.
    Peter Bates was born in Manchester, England on December 27, 1947. He graduated from the University of London in mathematics in 1969 after which he moved to United States with his family. Later, he attended the University of Utah and received his Ph.D. in 1976. Following his graduation, Peter moved to Texas and taught at University of Texas at Pan American and Texas A&M University. He returned to Utah in 1984 and taught at Brigham Young University until 2004. He is currently a professor of mathematics at Michigan State University.

A Siegel theorem for dynamical systems under random perturbations

A note on partially hyperbolic attractors: Entropy conjecture and SRB measures
Peidong Liu Kening Lu
In this note we show that, for a class of partially hyperbolic $C^r$ ($r \geq 1$) diffeomorphisms, (1) Shub's entropy conjecture holds true; (2) SRB measures exist as zero-noise limits.

Limiting behavior of dynamics for stochastic reaction-diffusion equations with additive noise on thin domains
Dingshi Li Kening Lu Bixiang Wang Xiaohu Wang

In this paper, we study the limiting behavior of dynamics for stochastic reaction-diffusion equations driven by an additive noise and a deterministic non-autonomous forcing on an (n+1)-dimensional thin region when it collapses into an n-dimensional region. We first established the existence of attractors and their properties for these equations on (n+1)-dimensional thin domains. We then show that these attractors converge to the random attractor of the limit equation under the usual semi-distance as the thinness goes to zero.

Local pathwise solutions to stochastic evolution equations driven by fractional Brownian motions with Hurst parameters $H\in (1/3,1/2]$
María J. Garrido–Atienza Kening Lu Björn Schmalfuss
In this article we are concerned with the study of the existence and uniqueness of pathwise mild solutions to evolutions equations driven by a Hölder continuous function with Hölder exponent in $(1/3,1/2)$. Our stochastic integral is a generalization of the well-known Young integral. To be more precise, the integral is defined by using a fractional integration by parts formula and it involves a tensor for which we need to formulate a new equation. From this it turns out that we have to solve a system consisting of a path and an area equations. In this paper we prove the existence of a unique local solution of the system of equations. The results can be applied to stochastic evolution equations with a non-linear diffusion coefficient driven by a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter in $(1/3,1/2]$, which in particular includes white noise.

Normal forms for quasiperiodic evolutionary equations
Shui-Nee Chow Kening Lu Yun-Qiu Shen
In this paper, we study the normal forms and analytic conjugacy for a class of analytic quasiperiodic evolutionary equations including parabolic equations and Schrödinger equations. We first obtain a normal form theory. Then as a special case of the normal form theory, we show that if the frequency and the eigenvalues satisfy certain small divisor conditions then the nonlinear equation is locally analytically conjugated to a linear equation. In other words, the normal form is a linear equation.

Invariant foliations for random dynamical systems
Ji Li Kening Lu Peter W. Bates
We prove the existence of invariant foliations of stable and unstable manifolds of a normally hyperbolic random invariant manifold. The normally hyperbolic random invariant manifold referred to here is that which was shown to exist in a previous paper when a deterministic dynamical system having a normally hyperbolic invariant manifold is subjected to a small random perturbation.

Random dynamical systems for stochastic partial differential equations driven by a fractional Brownian motion
María J. Garrido–Atienza Kening Lu Björn Schmalfuss
In this paper we study nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) driven by a fractional Brownian motion (fBm) with the Hurst parameter bigger than $1/2$. We show that these SPDEs generate random dynamical systems (or stochastic flows) by using the stochastic calculus for an fBm where the stochastic integrals are defined by integrands given by fractional derivatives. In particular, we emphasize that the coefficients in front of the fractional noise are non-trivial.

Existence of SRB measures for a class of partially hyperbolic attractors in banach spaces

In this paper, we study the existence of SRB measures for infinite dimensional dynamical systems in a Banach space. We show that if the system has a partially hyperbolic attractor with nontrivial finite dimensional unstable directions, then it has an SRB measure.
