Abstract: The standard variational principles in
geometric mechanics suggest an extension to the
stochastic setting. Stochastic variational
principles lead to interesting equations, both
stochastic and deterministic. Due to time constraints,
I will concentrate only on the stochastic variational
principles that lead to deterministic equations. As an
application, the classical compressible Navier-Stokes
equations are derived. This is joint work with Xin
Chen and Ana Bela Cruzeiro.
