The PARADYSE team gathers mathematicians from different communities with the same motivation: to provide a better understanding of dynamical phenomena involving particles. These phenomena are described by fundamental models arising from several fields of physics. We shall focus on model derivation, study of stationary states and asymptotic behaviors, as well as links between different levels of description (from microscopic to macroscopic) and numerical methods to simulate such models. Applications include non-linear optics, thermodynamics and ferromagnetism. Research in this direction has a long history, that we shall only partially describe in the sequel. We are confident that the fact that we come from different mathematical communities (PDE theory, mathematical physics, probability theory and numerical analysis), as well as the fact that we have strong and effective collaborations with physicists, will bring new and efficient scientific approaches to the problems we plan to tackle and will make our team strong and unique in the scientific landscape. Our goal is to obtain original and important results on a restricted yet ambitious set of problems that we develop in this document.

The team investigates the existence of solitons and their link with the global
dynamical behavior for non-local problems such as
the Gross–Pitaevskii (GP) equation which arises in models of dipolar gases.
These models, in general, also introduce non-zero boundary conditions which
constitute an additional theoretical and numerical challenge.
Numerous results are proved for local problems, and numerical simulations
allow to verify and illustrate them, as well as making a link with physics.
However, most fundamental questions are still open at the moment for non-local
problems.

The non-linear Schrödinger (NLS) equation finds applications in numerous fields of physics. We concentrate, in a continued collaboration with our colleagues from the physics department (PhLAM) at Université de Lille (U-Lille) in the framework of the Laboratoire d'Excellence CEMPI, on its applications in non-linear optics and cold atom physics. Issues of orbital stability and modulational instability are central here (see Section 4.1 below).

Another typical example of problem that the team wishes to address
concerns the Landau–Lifshitz (LL) equation,
which describes the dynamics of the spin
in ferromagnetic materials.
This equation is a fundamental model in the magnetic recording industry
40 and solitons in magnetic media are of particular interest
as a mechanism for data storage or information transfer 41.
It is a quasilinear PDE involving a function that takes values on the unit
sphere

The team investigates, from a microscopic viewpoint, the dynamical mechanism at play in the phenomenon of relaxation towards thermal equilibrium for large systems of interacting particles. For instance, a first step consists in giving a rigorous proof of the fact that a particle repeatedly scattered by random obstacles through a Hamiltonian scattering process will eventually reach thermal equilibrium, thereby completing previous works in this direction by the team. As a second step, models similar to the ones considered classically will be defined and analyzed in the quantum mechanical setting, and more particularly in the setting of quantum optics.

Another challenging problem is to understand the interaction of large systems with the boundaries, which is responsible for most energy exchanges (forcing and dissipation), even though it is concentrated in very thin layers. The presence of boundary conditions to evolution equations sometimes lacks understanding from a physical and mathematical point of view. In order to legitimate the choice done at the macroscopic level of the mathematical definition of the boundary conditions, we investigate systems of particles with different local interactions. We apply various techniques to understand how diffusive and driven systems interact with the boundaries.

Finally, we aim at obtaining results on the macroscopic behavior of large scale interacting particle systems subject to kinetic constraints. In particular, we study the behavior in one and two dimensions of the Facilitated Exclusion Process (FEP), on which several results have already been obtained. The latter is a very interesting prototype for kinetically constrained models because of its unique mathematical features (explicit stationary states, absence of mobile cluster to locally shuffle the configuration). There are very few mathematical results on the FEP, which was put forward by the physics community as a toy model for phase separation.

Our goal is to develop collaboration at the interface between probability and PDE theory, and use the rich PDE background of the team to provide tools to be used on statistical physics problems put forward by the probability side of the team.

The team addresses both questions of precision and numerical cost of the schemes for the numerical integration of non-linear evolution PDEs, such as the NLS equation. In particular, we aim at developing, studying and implementing numerical schemes with high order that are more efficient for these problems. We also want to contribute to the design and analysis of schemes with appropriate qualitative properties. These properties may as well be “asymptotic-preserving” properties, energy-preserving properties, or convergence to an equilibrium properties. Other numerical goals of the team include the numerical simulation of standing waves of non-linear non-local GP equations. We also keep on developing numerical methods to efficiently simulate and illustrate theoretical results on instability, in particular in the context of the modulational instability in optical fibers, where we study the influence of randomness in the physical parameters of the fibers.

The team also designs simulation methods to estimate the accuracy of the physical description via microscopic systems, by computing precisely the rate of convergence as the system size goes to infinity. One method under investigation is related to cloning algorithms, which were introduced very recently and turn out to be essential in molecular simulation.

In the propagation of light in optical fibers, the combined effect of non-linearity and group velocity dispersion (GVD) may lead to the destabilization of the stationary states (plane or continuous waves). This phenomenon, known under the name of modulational instability (MI), consists in the exponential growth of small harmonic perturbations of a continuous wave. MI has been pioneered in the 60s in the context of fluid mechanics, electromagnetic waves as well as in plasmas, and it has been observed in non-linear fiber optics in the 80s. In uniform fibers, MI arises for anomalous (negative) GVD, but it may also appear for normal GVD if polarization, higher order modes or higher order dispersion are considered. A different kind of MI related to a parametric resonance mechanism emerges when the dispersion or the non-linearity of the fiber are periodically modulated.

As a follow-up of our work on MI in periodically modulated optical fibers, we investigate the effect of random modulations in the diameter of the fiber on its dynamics. It is expected on theoretical grounds that such random fluctuations can lead to MI and this has already been illustrated for some models of the randomness. We investigate precisely the conditions under which this phenomenon can be strong enough to be experimentally verified. For this purpose, we investigate different kinds of random processes describing the modulations, taking into account the manner in which such modulations can be created experimentally by our partners of the fiber facility of the PhLAM. This necessitates a careful modeling of the fiber and a precise numerical simulation of its behavior as well as a theoretical analysis of the statistics of the fiber dynamics.

The Landau–Lifshitz (LL) equation describes the dynamics of the spin in ferromagnetic materials. Depending on the properties of the material, the LL equation can include a dissipation term (the so-called Gilbert damping) and different types of anisotropic terms. The LL equation belongs to a larger class of non-linear PDEs which are often referred to as geometric PDEs, and some related models are the Schrödinger map equation and the harmonic heat flow. We focus on the following aspects of the LL equation.

In the absence of Gilbert damping, the LL equation is Hamiltonian. Moreover, it is integrable in the one-dimensional case and explicit formulas for solitons can be given. In the easy-plane case, the orbital and asymptotic stability of these solitons have been established. However, the stability in other cases, such as in biaxial ferromagnets, remains an open problem. In higher dimensional cases, the existence of solitons is more involved. In a previous work, a branch of semitopological solitons with different speeds has been obtained numerically in planar ferromagnets. A rigorous proof of the existence of such solitons is established using perturbation arguments, provided that the speed is small enough. However, the proof does not give information about their stability. We would like to propose a variational approach to study the existence of this branch of solitons, that would lead to the existence and stability of the whole branch of ground-state solitons as predicted. We also investigate numerically the existence of other types of localized solutions for the LL equation, such as excited states or vortices in rotation.

On the other hand, with the inclusion of the Gilbert damping, the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert (LLG) equation becomes (partially) dissipative.
Interestingly, in the one-dimensional case, the same solitons, referred to as domain walls, emerge as significant structures. Not only do they demonstrate asymptotic stability, even in the presence of a small magnetic field (36), but they also serve as crucial building blocks for various stable configurations, such as 2-domain wall structures (35).
Numerical simulations further suggest that any general solution should decompose over time into a superposition of domain walls, though this still presents an open problem at the theoretical level.
Exploring the scenario of a notched nanowire (34) reveals yet another context where generalized domain walls manifest. They exhibit an even better asymptotic stability compared to their non-notched counterparts, which may lead to applications in information storage.

In quantum physics and nonlinear optics, the Gross-Pitaevskii equation with non-zero boundary conditions is employed to describe the behavior of quantum fluids and Bose-Einstein condensates. The primary challenges are to comprehend new realistic physical effects, such as nonlocal interactions, quasilinear effects and variations in the width of the domain.

In order to establish a rigorous understanding of the dynamics of these models, the study of particular solutions such as dark solitons, which play a key role in the large-time behavior, is a crucial first step. For instance, proving the stability of dark solitons, based on various physical considerations, implies that these structures are good candidates to be controlled experimentally and to be considered in new applications.

Although the properties of dark solitons are well-known in classical models described by the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, the situation becomes more intricate when adding terms to model new realistic physical effects. Each characteristic introduces a range of new theoretical and numerical difficulties. This complexity emphasizes the need for a careful and detailed examination to enhance our understanding of these intricate systems.

This application domain involves in particular A. de Laire, G. Dujardin and G. Ferriere.

The cold atoms team of the PhLAM Laboratory is reputed for having realized experimentally the so-called Quantum Kicked Rotor, which provides a model for the phenomenon of Anderson localization. The latter was predicted by Anderson in 1958, who received in 1977 a Nobel Prize for this work. Anderson localization is the absence of diffusion of quantum mechanical wave functions (and of waves in general) due to the presence of randomness in the medium in which they propagate. Its transposition to the Quantum Kicked Rotor goes as follows: a freely moving quantum particle periodically subjected to a “kick” will see its energy saturate at long times. In this sense, it “localizes” in momentum space since its momenta do not grow indefinitely, as one would expect on classical grounds. In its original form, Anderson localization applies to non-interacting quantum particles and the same is true for the saturation effect observed in the Quantum Kicked Rotor.

The challenge is now to understand the effects of interactions between the atoms on the localization phenomenon. Transposing this problem to the Quantum Kicked Rotor, this means describing the interactions between the particles with a Gross–Pitaevskii equation, which is a NLS equation with a local (typically cubic) non-linearity. So the particle’s wave function evolves between kicks following the Gross–Pitaevskii equation and not the linear Schrödinger equation, as is the case in the Quantum Kicked Rotor. Preliminary studies for the Anderson model have concluded that in that case the localization phenomenon gives way to a slow subdiffusive growth of the particle’s kinetic energy. A similar phenomenon is expected in the non-linear Quantum Kicked Rotor, but a precise understanding of the dynamical mechanisms at work, of the time scale at which the subdiffusive growth will occur and of the subdiffusive growth exponent is lacking. It is crucial to design and calibrate the experimental setup intended to observe the phenomenon. The analysis of these questions poses considerable theoretical and numerical challenges due to the difficulties involved in understanding and simulating the long term dynamics of the non-linear system. A collaboration of the team members with the PhLAM cold atoms group is currently under way.

This application domain involves in particular S. De Bièvre and G. Dujardin.

The understanding of the propagation of waves in shallow water is of importance for the modelling of tsunamis and other rogue waves. This requires a better understanding of dispersive shallow water systems as ABCD systems, that are related to the classical Boussines systems, and classifying particular travelling waves solutions for these systems. To deal with systems is at forefront of research. Analogous questions for single equations as KdV equations are well-documented.

A. de Laire and O. Goubet are involved in these topics, together with researchers in Chile : Claudio Muñoz (Universidad de Chile), María Eugenia Martinez (University of Chile) and Felipe Poblete (Austral University of Chile). The applications for tsunamis is of interest for people in Chile.

The use of multimode fibers is a possible way to overcome the bandwidth crisis to come in our worldwide communication network consisting in singlemode fibers. Moreover, multimode fibers have applications in several other domains, such as high power fiber lasers and femtosecond-pulse fiber lasers which are useful for clinical applications of non-linear optical microscopy and precision materials processing. From the modeling point of view, the envelope equations are a system of non-linear non-local coupled Schrödinger equations. For a better understanding of several physical phenomena in multimode fibers (e.g. continuum generation, condensation) as well as for the design of physical experiments, numerical simulations are a suitable tool. However, the huge number of equations, the coupled non-linearities and the non-local effects are very difficult to handle numerically. Some attempts have been made to develop and make available efficient numerical codes for such simulations. However, there is room for improvement: one may want to go beyond MATLAB prototypes, and to develop an alternative parallelization to the existing ones, which could use the linearly implicit methods that we plan to develop and analyze. In link with the application domain 4.1, we develop in particular a code for the numerical simulation of the propagation of light in multimode fibers, using high-order efficient methods, that is to be used by the physics community.

This application domain involves in particular G. Dujardin and A. Roget.

We contribute to the design and analysis of schemes with good qualitative properties. These properties may as well be “asymptotic-preserving” properties, energy-preserving properties, decay properties, or convergence to an equilibrium properties. In particular, we contribute to the design and analysis of numerically hypocoercive methods for Fokker–Planck equations 38, as well as energy-preserving methods for hamiltonian problems 32.

This application domain involves in particular G. Dujardin.

We contribute to the design of efficient numerical methods for the simulation of non-linear evolution problems. In particular, we focus on a class of linearly implicit high-order methods, that have been introduced for ODEs and generalized to PDEs 25. We wish both to extend their analysis to PDE contexts, and to analyze their qualitative properties in such contexts.

This application domain involves in particular G. Dujardin.

Analogously to the so-called Kinetically Constrained Models (KCM) that have served as toy models for glassy transitions, stochastic particle systems on a lattice can be used as toy models for a variety of physical phenomena. Among them, the kinetically constrained lattice gases (KCLG) are models in which particles jump randomly on a lattice, but are only allowed to jump if a local constraint is satisfied by the system.

Because of the hard constraint, the typical local behavior of KCLGs will differ significantly depending on the value of local conserved fields (e.g. particle density), because the constraint will either be typically satisfied, in which case the system is locally diffusive (liquid phase), or not, in which case the system quickly freezes out (solid phase).

Such a toy model for liquid-solid transition is investigated by C. Erignoux, M. Simon and their co-authors in 3 and 33. The focus of these articles is the so-called facilitated exclusion process, which is a terminology coined by physicists for a specific KCLG, in which particles can only jump on an empty neighbor if another neighboring site is occupied. They derive the macroscopic behavior of the model, and show that in dimension 1 the hydrodynamic limit displays a phase separated behavior where the liquid phase progressively invades the solid phase.

Both from a physical and mathematical point of view, much remains to be done regarding these challenging models: in particular, they present significant mathematical difficulties because of the way the local physical constraints put on the system distort the equilibrium and steady-states of the model. For this reason, C. Erignoux and A. Roget are currently working with M. Simon (Institut Camille Jordan, Université Lyon 1) and A. Shapira (MAP5, Paris) to generate numerical results on generalizations of the facilitated exclusion process, in order to shine some light on the microscopic and macroscopic behavior of these difficult models.

This application domain involves in particular C. Erignoux and A. Roget.

This application domain is at the interface of mathematical modeling and numerics. Its object of study is a set of concrete problems in ecology. The landscape of the south of the Hauts-de-France region is made of agricultural land, encompassing forest patches and ecological corridors such as hedges. The issues are

Running numerics on models co-constructed with ecologists is also at the heart of the project. In our model, the timescales of animals and plants compare. The life cycle of a tree is one year. For animals we consider mainly insects whose life cycle is also of one year, even for the propagation of insects. Beetle larvae spend a few years in the earth before moving. As a by-product, the mathematical model may tackle other major issues such as the interplay between heterogeneity, diversity and invasibility.

The models use Markov chains at a mesoscopic scale and evolution advection-diffusion equations at a macroscopic scale.

This application domain involves O. Goubet. Interactions with PARADYSE members concerned with particle models and hydrodynamic limits are planned.

Some of the results presented below overlap several of the main research themes presented in section 3. However, results presented in paragraphs 6.1-6.4 are mainly concerned with research axis 3.1, whereas paragraphs 6.5-6.8 mostly concern axis 3.2. Paragraphs 6.9-6.13 are related to quantum information and computing, and Paragraphs 6.14-6.18 concern numerics-oriented results, so that they are all encompassed in axis 3.3.

A. de Laire and E. Le Quiniou have studied a quasilinear Schrödinger equation with nonzero conditions at infinity in dimension one. This quasilinear model corresponds to a weakly nonlocal approximation of the nonlocal Gross–Pitaevskii equation, and can also be derived by considering the effects of surface tension in superfluids. When the quasilinear term is neglected, the resulting equation is the classical Gross–Pitaevskii equation, which possesses a well-known stable branch of subsonic traveling waves solution, given by dark solitons.

In the preprint 28, they investigate how the quasilinear term affects the traveling-waves solutions. They provide a complete classification of finite energy traveling waves of the equation, in terms of the two parameters: the speed and the strength of the quasilinear term. This classification leads to the existence of dark and antidark solitons, as well as more exotic localized solutions like dark cuspons, compactons, and composite waves, even for supersonic speeds. Depending on the parameters, these types of solutions can coexist, showing that finite energy solutions are not unique. Furthermore, they prove that some of these dark solitons can be obtained as minimizers of the energy, at fixed momentum, and that they are orbitally stable.

In one space dimension, the Gross-Pitaevskii equation possesses a family of finite energy travelling waves, called dark solitons.
These solitons extend trivially to the strip given by the product space

In the articles 20 and 19, A. de Laire, P. Gravejat and D. Smets provide a rigorous framework for studying this kind of phenomenon. Precisely, they prove the existence of nonconstant finite energy travelling wave solutions to the Gross-Pitaevskii equation on the strip

The logarithmic nonlinearity in the context of Schrödinger equations has recently regained interest in various domains of physics.
For instance, this model may generalize the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, used in the case of two-body interaction, to the case of three-body interaction.
R. Carles and G. Ferriere study this equation, named the logarithmic Gross-Pitaevskii equation (or logGP), on the whole space

The logarithmic Schrödinger appears as a fundamental model in quantum gravity and nuclear physics, and adding a white noise potential can model strong media disorder. In 22, Q. Chauleur and A. Mouzard prove the existence and uniqueness of solutions to the stochastic logarithmic Schrödinger. The proof relies on a particular exponential transform which have proved being useful in several contexts, in particular in models arising from quantum field theory.

In 14, C. Erignoux, M. Simon and L. Zhao investigate the macroscopic behavior of asymmetric attractive zero-range processes on

Efficiently characterizing non-equilibrium stationary states (NESS) has been in recent years a central question in statistical physics. The Macroscopic Fluctuations Theory 31 developped by Bertini et al. has laid out a strong mathematical framework to understand NESS, however fully deriving and characterizing large deviations principles for NESS remains a challenging endeavour. In 11, C. Erignoux and his collaborators proved that a static large deviations principle holds for the NESS of the classical Symmetric Simple Exclusion Process (SSEP) in weak interaction with particles reservoirs. This result echoes a previous result by Derrida, Lebowitz and Speer 37, where the SSEP with strong boundary interactions was considered. In 11, it was also shown that the rate function can be characterized both by a variational formula involving the corresponding dynamical large deviations principle, and by the solution to a non-linear differential equation. The obtained differential equation is the same as in 37, with different boundary conditions corresponding to the different scales of boundary interaction.

In 15, C. Erignoux, M. Simon and L. Zhao derive the hydrodynamic limit for two degenerate lattice gases, the facilitated exclusion process (FEP) and the facilitated zero-range process (FZRP), both in the symmetric and the asymmetric case. For both processes, the hydrodynamic limit in the symmetric case takes the form of a diffusive Stefan problem, whereas the asymmetric case is characterized by a hyperbolic Stefan problem. Although the FZRP is attractive, a property that they extensively use to derive its hydrodynamic limits in both cases, the FEP is not. To derive the hydrodynamic limit for the latter, they exploit that of the zero-range process, together with a classical mapping between exclusion and zero-range processes, both at the microscopic and macroscopic level. Because the FEP is degenerate, we had to develop new mapping tools to prove hydrodynamic in the asymmetric case. In the symmetric case, a proof already existed 33 for the hydrodynamic limit, however our mapping arguments further provide an alternative, simpler proof.

In 27, C. Erignoux and L. Zhao derive the stationary fluctuations for the Facilitated Exclusion Process (FEP) in one dimension in the symmetric, weakly asymmetric and asymmetric cases. The proof relies on the mapping between the FEP and the zero-range process, and extends the same strategy as in previous works, where hydrodynamic limits were derived for the FEP, to its stationary fluctuations. Their results thus exploit works on the zero-range process's fluctuations, but they also provide a direct proof in the symmetric case, for which they derive a sharp estimate on the equivalence of ensembles for the FEP's stationary states.

The Kirkwood-Dirac (KD) quasiprobability distribution can describe any quantum state with respect to the eigenbases of two observables A and B. KD distributions behave similarly to classical joint probability distributions but can assume negative and nonreal values. In 13 S. De Bièvre provides an in-depth study of the notion of completely incompatible observables that he recently introduced and of its links to the support uncertainty and to the Kirkwood-Dirac nonclassicality of pure quantum states. The latter notion has recently been proven central to a number of issues in quantum information theory and quantum metrology. In this last context, it was shown that a quantum advantage requires the use of Kirkwood-Dirac nonclassical states. S. De Bièvre establishes sharp bounds of very general validity that imply that the support uncertainty is an efficient Kirkwood-Dirac nonclassicality witness for pure states. When adapted to completely incompatible observables that are close to mutually unbiased ones, this bound allows to fully characterize the Kirkwood-Dirac classical pure states as the eigenvectors of the two observables. In 29, De Bièvre, C. Langrenez and D. Arvidsson (Cambridge) provide an analysis of the geometry of the KD-positive and -nonpositive pure and mixed states. They characterize the dependence of the full convex set of states with positive KD distributions on the eigenbases of A and B.

Photon addition and subtraction render Gaussian states of the quantized optical field non-Gaussian. In 17, S. De Bièvre and A. Hertz (Toronto-Ottawa) provide a quantitative analysis of the change in the so-called nonclassicality produced by these processes by analyzing the Wigner negativity and quadrature coherence scale (QCS) of the resulting states. The QCS is a recently introduced measure of nonclassicality [PRL 122, 080402 (2019), PRL 124, 090402 (2020)], that we show to undergo a relative increase under photon addition/subtraction that can be as large as 200%.

In 16, S. De Bièvre and his collaborators from the Université Libre de Bruxelles provided an experimental procedure for directly accessing the QCS of the quantum state of an optical field, with the help of only a simple linear interferometer involving two replicas (independent and identical copies) of the state

In 9 S. De Bièvre, G. Dujardin and their collaborators (physicists from the PhLAM laboratory in Lille) study modulational instability in a dispersion-managed system where the sign of the group-velocity dispersion is changed at uniformly distributed random distances around a reference length. An analytical technique is presented to estimate the instability gain from the linearized nonlinear Schrödinger equation, which is also solved numerically. The comparison of numerical and analytical results confirms the validity of their approach. Modulational instability of purely stochastic origin appears.

Rigorous derivations of the approach of individual elements of large isolated systems to a state of thermal equilibrium, starting from arbitrary initial states, are exceedingly rare. This is particularly true for quantum mechanical systems. In 23, S. De Bièvre and his collaborators demonstrate how, through a mechanism of repeated scattering, an approach to equilibrium of this type actually occurs in a specific quantum optics system.

As it is known, the nonlinear Schrödinger stands as a prime model in order to describe the propagation of waves in nonlinear optics or the dynamics of a superfluid in Bose-Einstein condensates.
Its discretization in space stands as a first step in order to perform reliable and efficient numerical simulations.

The existence and decay properties of dark solitons for a large class of nonlinear nonlocal Gross-Pitaevskii equations with nonzero boundary conditions in dimension one has been established recently by A. de Laire and S. López-Martínez in 8. Mathematically, these solitons correspond to minimizers of the energy at fixed momentum and are orbitally stable. In the paper 18, A. de Laire, G. Dujardin and S. López-Martínez provide a numerical method to compute approximations of such solitons for these types of equations, and give actual numerical experiments for several types of physically relevant nonlocal potentials. These simulations allow them to obtain a variety of dark solitons, and to comment on their shapes in terms of the parameters of the nonlocal potential. In particular, they suggest that, given the dispersion relation, the speed of sound and the Landau speed are important values to understand the properties of these dark solitons. They also allow them to test the necessity of some sufficient conditions in the theoretical result proving existence of the dark solitons.

G. Dujardin and his collaborator introduced a new class of numerical methods for the time integration of evolution equations set as Cauchy problems of ODEs or PDEs, in the research direction detailed in Section 3.3. The systematic design of these methods mixes the Runge–Kutta collocation formalism with collocation techniques, in such a way that the methods are linearly implicit and have high order. A specific analysis of Runge–Kutta collocation methods for this purpose was carried out by G. Dujardin and his collaborator 24. The fact that these methods are implicit allows to avoid CFL conditions when the large systems to integrate come from the space discretization of evolution PDEs. Moreover, these methods proved to be efficient since they only require to solve one linear system of equations at each time step, and efficient techniques from the literature can be used to do so 25.

The Manakov system is a system of dispersive stochastic PDEs modelling the propagation of light in optical fibers taking into account the polarization mode dispersion effects.
In 10, G. Dujardin and his collaborators developed and analyzed an exponential integrator for the numerical solution of this stochastic PDE system. In particular, they proved that this exponential integrator has strong order

In 26, G. Dujardin and his collaborator tackled the problem of proving uniform-in-time order estimates for a scheme integrating the linear heat equation with homogeneous pure Neumann boundary conditions on a bounded interval. Despite the lack of consistency of the discretization of the boudary condition with the Laplace operator, they proved that the scheme they consider is of order 1 in space and time uniformly-in-time. They applied this result to the question of the numerical computation of stationary states to nonhomogeneous heat equations.
