  1. J. M. Tölle (with P. Beissner). A compact topology for σ-algebra convergence. Preprint, submitted (2017), 23 pp.

    Abstract. We propose a sequential topology on the collection of sub-σ-algebras included in a separable probability space (Ω, ℱ, ℙ). We prove weak compactness of the conditional expectations with respect to L2-bounded random variables along sequences of sub-σ-algebras. The varying index of measurability is captured by a bundle space construction. As a consequence, we establish the compactness of the space of sub-σ-algebras. The proposed topology preserves independence and is compatible with join and meet operations. Finally, a new application to information economics is discussed.

  1. J. M. Tölle. Estimates for nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations with gradient noise via Dirichlet forms. Preprint, to appear in Stochastic Partial Differential Equations and Related Fields, (2017), 11 pp.

Abstract. We present a priori estimates for nonlinear Stratonovich stochastic partial differential equations on the d-dimensional torus with p-Laplace-type drift with sublinear non-homogeneous nonlinearities and Gaussian gradient Stratonovich noise with C1-vector field coefficients. Assuming a commutator bound, the results are obtained by using resolvent and Dirichlet form methods and an approximative Itô-formula.
