Global Well-Posedness of Stochastic Abelian-Higgs in Two Dimensions

There has been much recent progress on the local solution theory for geometric singular SPDEs. However, the global theory is still largely open. In my talk, I will discuss the global well-posedness of the stochastic Abelian-Higgs model in two dimensions, which is a geometric singular SPDE arising from gauge theory. The proof is based on a new covariant approach, which consists of two parts: First, we introduce covariant stochastic objects, which are controlled using covariant heat kernel estimates. Second, we control nonlinear remainders using a covariant monotonicity formula, which is inspired by earlier work of Hamilton. 

Joint work with Bjoern Bringmann.
