Bridging the (spectral) gap between classical stability analysis and stochastic analysis

Many reaction-diffusion equations have traveling waves as solutions and these waves are often stable. The stability of these waves can be understood via spectral considerations and this is quite well understood. However, when it comes to the stability of traveling waves in stochastic reaction-diffusion equations, people mainly resort to numerical analysis or Lyapunov-type arguments. The goal of my research is to combine nonlinear stability analysis for deterministic equations with stochastic analysis.
