A practical criterion for positivity of transition densities
Herzog, David P; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Nonlinearity, 20150710)© 2015 IOP Publishing Ltd & London Mathematical Society.We establish a simple criterion for locating points where the transition density of a degenerate diffusion is strictly positive. Throughout, we assume that the diffusion ... 
A theory of hypoellipticity and unique ergodicity for semilinear stochastic PDEs
Hairer, Martin; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Electronic Journal of Probability, 20110509)We present a theory of hypoellipticity and unique ergodicity for semilinear parabolic stochastic PDEs with "polynomial" nonlinearities and additive noise, considered as abstract evolution equations in some Hilbert space. ... 
Ergodicity for the navierstokes equation with degenerate random forcing: Finitedimensional approximation
E, Weinan; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics, 20011101)We study Galerkin truncations of the twodimensional NavierStokes equation under degenerate, largescale, stochastic forcing. We identify the minimal set of modes that has to be forced in order for the system to be ergodic. ... 
Error bounds for Approximations of Markov chains
Johndrow, James E; Mattingly, Jonathan C (20171130)The first part of this article gives error bounds for approximations of Markov kernels under FosterLyapunov conditions. The basic idea is that when both the approximating kernel and the original kernel satisfy a FosterLyapunov ... 
Geometric Ergodicity of Two–dimensional Hamiltonian systems with a Lennard–Jones–like Repulsive Potential
Cooke, Ben; Mattingly, Jonathan C; McKinley, Scott A; Schmidler, Scott C (arXiv preprint arXiv:1104.3842, 2011) 
Invariant measure selection by noise. An example
Mattingly, Jonathan C; Pardoux, Etienne (Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems Series A, 20140101)We consider a deterministic system with two conserved quantities and infinity many invariant measures. However the systems possess a unique invariant measure when enough stochastic forcing and balancing dissipation are added. ... 
MultiScale MergeSplit Markov Chain Monte Carlo for Redistricting
Autry, Eric A; Carter, Daniel; Herschlag, Gregory; Hunter, Zach; Mattingly, Jonathan CWe develop a MultiScale MergeSplit Markov chain on redistricting plans. The chain is designed to be usable as the proposal in a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm. Sampling the space of plans amounts to dividing ... 
Noiseinduced stabilization of planar flows ii
Herzog, David P; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Electronic Journal of Probability, 20151025)© 2015 University of Washington. All rights reserved.We continue the work started in Part I [6], showing how the addition of noise can stabilize an otherwise unstable system. The analysis makes use of nearly optimal Lyapunov ... 
Noiseinduced strong stabilization
Leimbach, Matti; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Scheutzow, MichaelWe consider a 2dimensional stochastic differential equation in polar coordinates depending on several parameters. We show that if these parameters belong to a specific regime then the deterministic system explodes ... 
Nonlocal SPDE limits of spatiallycorrelatednoise driven spin systems derived to sample a canonical distribution
Gao, Yuan; Marzuola, Jeremy L; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Newhall, Katherine AWe study the macroscopic behavior of a stochastic spin ensemble driven by a discrete Markov jump process motivated by the MetropolisHastings algorithm where the proposal is made with spatially correlated (colored) noise, ... 
Nonreversible Markov chain Monte Carlo for sampling of districting maps
Herschlag, Gregory; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Sachs, Matthias; Wyse, EvanEvaluating the degree of partisan districting (Gerrymandering) in a statistical framework typically requires an ensemble of districting plans which are drawn from a prescribed probability distribution that adheres to a realistic ... 
Numerical methods for stochastic differential equations based on Gaussian mixture
Li, Lei; Lu, Jianfeng; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Wang, LihanWe develop in this work a numerical method for stochastic differential equations (SDEs) with weak second order accuracy based on Gaussian mixture. Unlike the conventional higher order schemes for SDEs based on It\^oTayl... 
Propagation of fluctuations in biochemical systems, I: Linear SSC networks
Anderson, David F; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Nijhout, H Frederik; Reed, Michael C (Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, 20070801)We investigate the propagation of random fluctuations through biochemical networks in which the number of molecules of each species is large enough so that the concentrations are well modeled by differential equations. We ... 
Rare Transition Events in Nonequilibrium Systems with StateDependent Noise: Application to Stochastic Current Switching in Semiconductor Superlattices
Heymann, Matthias; Teitsworth, Stephen W; Mattingly, Jonathan C (arXiv preprint arXiv:1008.4037, 2010) 
Redistricting and the Will of the People
Mattingly, Jonathan C; Vaughn, Christy (arXiv preprint arXiv:1410.8796, 2014) 
Redistricting: Drawing the Line
Bangia, Sachet; Graves, Christy Vaughn; Herschlag, Gregory; Kang, Han Sung; Luo, Justin; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Ravier, Robert (20170412)We develop methods to evaluate whether a political districting accurately represents the will of the people. To explore and showcase our ideas, we concentrate on the congressional districts for the U.S. House of representatives ... 
Regularity of invariant densities for 1D systems with random switching
Bakhtin, Yuri; Hurth, Tobias; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Nonlinearity, 20150930)© 2015 IOP Publishing Ltd & London Mathematical Society.This is a detailed analysis of invariant measures for onedimensional dynamical systems with random switching. In particular, we prove the smoothness of the invariant ... 
Sensitivity to switching rates in stochastically switched ODEs
Lawley, Sean D; Mattingly, Jonathan C; Reed, Michael C (Communications in Mathematical Sciences, 20140101)We consider a stochastic process driven by a linear ordinary differential equation whose righthand side switches at exponential times between a collection of different matrices. We construct planar examples that switch ... 
Spectral gaps in wasserstein distances and the 2d stochastic navierstokes equations
Hairer, Martin; Mattingly, Jonathan C (Annals of Probability, 20081101)We develop a general method to prove the existence of spectral gaps for Markov semigroups on Banach spaces. Unlike most previous work, the type of norm we consider for this analysis is neither a weighted supremum norm nor ...
