Sticky flows on the circle and their noises

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper gives a construction of sticky flows on the circle. Sticky flows give examples of stochastic flows of kernels that interpolates between Arratia's coalescing flow and the deterministic diffusion flow. They are associated with systems of sticky independent Brownian particles on the circle, for some fixed parameter of stickyness. It is proved that the noise generated by Brownian sticky flows is black. A new proof of the fact that the noise of Arratia's coalescing flow is black is given.
