#### Abstract

We consider the uniformly random attractor for the three-dimensional stochastic nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equations in the periodic box in this paper. We associate with the concepts of uniform attractor and random attractor and produce the concept of uniformly random attractor for a process. Then we establish the existence of the uniformly random attractor in and for the equations.

#### 1. Introduction

The Camassa-Holm equation models the unidirectional propagation of shallow water waves over a flat bottom [1–4]. It has been paid a large number of attentions due to its rich nonlinear phenomenology. It is completely integrable [1], and it has stable solutions [5]. It possesses the peakons which has been proved stable [6, 7]. It has been shown that (1) is locally well-posed for initial data [8, 9]. There are a rich variety of global solutions and blow-up solutions obtained in [8–10]. The global existence of weak solutions, conservative solutions, and disispative solutions was investigated in [6, 11, 12].

Following the Camassa-Holm (1), some generalized types of the equation have been deeply considered by many authors, for instance [13–18]. The authors in [19] considered the three-dimensional Camassa-Holm equations subject to periodic boundary conditions: They established the global regularity of solutions of the equation and provided the estimates for the Hausdorff and fractal dimensions of the global attractor.

In [20] the authors analyzed the effects produced by stochastic perturbations in the deterministic version of the three-dimensional Lagrangian averaged Navier-Stokes- model: that is, the persistence of exponential stability as well as possible stabilization effects produced by the noise.

In [21] the authors proved the existence of the pullback and forward attractors for three-dimensional Lagrangian averaged Navier-Stokes- model with delay:

In [22] the author investigated the existence of finite dimensional uniform attractor for three-dimensional nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equations with periodic boundary conditions:

In [23, 24] the author studied the existence of uniform attractor and convergence of the attractor as for a nonautonomous three-dimensional Lagrangian averaged Navier-Stokes- model with singularly oscillating external force: where

Motivated by all their works, we initial our work to investigate the equations perturbed by an additive noise. We consider the following viscous version of three-dimensional stochastic nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equation in the periodic box : where is the modified pressure, while is the pressure, is the constant viscosity, and is a constant density. The function is a given body forcing, and , are scale parameters. are two-sided real-valued Wiener processes on a probability space which will be specified later. is a bounded linear operator. Also observing that at the limiting case , , we obtain the three-dimensional stochastic Navier-Stokes with periodic boundary conditions.

Attractor is an important concept to describe the long-time behavior of solutions for a system in mathematical physics [25–27]. The notion of uniform attractor parallelling to that of the global autonomous systems has been systematically considered in [26]. In the approach presented in [27], to construct the uniform attractor, instead of the associated process , one should consider a family of processes , , in some Banach space where the functional parameter , , is called the symbol and is the symbol space including . The approach implies that the structure of uniform attractor is described by the representation as a union of sections of all kernels of the family of processes. The kernel is the set of all complete trajectories of a process.

While in the real world, a system is usually uncertain due to some external noise, which is random. The random effects are considered not only as compensations for the defects in some deterministic models but rather essential phenomena [28–32]. In order to capture the essential dynamics of random dynamical systems with wide fluctuations, the concept of pullback random attractor was introduced in [29, 33, 34], as an extension to stochastic systems of the theory of attractors for deterministic systems in [25, 27, 35–43]. A pullback random attractor which can be constructed by a closed random absorbing set for an asymptotically compact stochastic mapping is given by where is the metric process on probability space. The existence of random attractors for stochastic dynamical systems has been investigated extensively by many authors [29, 33, 34, 44–49]. In our paper, we associate with the concepts of uniform attractor and random attractor together and give the concept of uniformly random attractor. Then we consider (8) in an appropriate space and show that there is a uniformly (with respect to ) random attractor which all solutions approach as . To our best knowledge, the long-time dynamical behavior of the three-dimensional stochastic nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equations has not been discussed, and we believe that it is a significant work to obtain a uniformly (with respect to ) random attractor for the system.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we present the abstract results describing the uniformly random attractor and some relevant definitions. In Section 3, we give some functional settings which are foundations for us to obtain the existence of uniformly (with respect to ) random attractor of (8). In Section 4, we convert (8) with an additive noise to deterministic equations with random parameters and define a process corresponding to the equations. In Section 5, we obtain the existence of uniformly (with respect to ) random attractors for (8) on the basis of the above preparations.

#### 2. Abstract Results

In this section, we associate with the concepts of uniform attractor and random attractor and obtain the notion of uniformly random attractor. Let be a separable Hilbert space with the Borel -algebra , and let be a probability space.

Next we define a symbol space for (8). We assume that the function is translation bounded. That is, for , we have

*Definition 13 (cf. [41]). *A function is said to be normal if, for any , there exists such that

We denote by the set of all normal functions in . Obviously, , and it is proved in [41] that is a closed subset of . Let a fixed symbol be normal functions in . That is, the family of translation forms a normal function set in , where is an arbitrary interval of the time axis . Therefore,

After integrating (8), one can easily see that On the other hand, because of the spatial periodicity of solution, we have . Then we have That is, the mean of solution is invariant provided that the means of the forcing term and the perturbing term are zero. In this paper, we will consider the forcing term, perturbing term and initial values with spatial means that are zero. That is, we assume , , and .

Next we introduce some essential functional spaces.(i)We denote by a vector-valued trigonometric polynomial defined on , such that and , and we let and be the closure of in and in , respectively.

#### 4. Stochastic Nonautonomous Camassa-Holm Equations

We now apply the result in Section 2 to the stochastic nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equations. To associate a family of processes with the stochastic equations over and , we need to convert the stochastic equations with a random additive term into deterministic equations with a random parameter.

First we define the bounded linear operator in (8) as follows: where , .

Given , consider the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck equation: One can easily check that a solution to (42) is given by It is known that the random variable is tempered and that is a.e is continuous. Now we put . By (42) we have Employing Cauchy-Schwarz’s inequality, we get

To show that (8) corresponds to a process , we let , where is a solution of (8). Then for , we have defined in the periodic box , satisfying We apply to (46) and use the notation in Section 3 to obtain the equivalent system of equations satisfying the initial condition By a Galerkin method as in [19], it can be proved that if and , for a.e. , (48) has a unique solution satisfying for any and such that, for almost all and for any ,

Now for any , (48) with instead of possesses a corresponding process acting on . It is analogous to the proof in [27] to prove that, for a.e , the family of processes is -continuous. Let be the so-called kernel of the process .

#### 5. Uniformly Random Attractor for Stochastic Nonautonomous Camassa-Holm Equation

In [19], the authors have shown that the semigroup corresponding to the autonomous system possesses a global attractor. In [21–24], the authors have proved that the deterministic version of nonautonomous system has a uniform attractor. The main objective of this section is to obtain the existence of uniformly with respect to random attractor for the stochastic nonautonomous Camassa-Holm equations in and .

Lemma 15. *Let be tempered and . Then the process corresponding to (48) possesses a uniformly (with respect to ) random absorbing set in .*

* Proof. *Letting in (51), we have

Replacing by in (57) and (58), we have
Note that are stationary and ergodic (cf. [24]), then it follows from ergodic theorem that
On the other hand, we have
Employing (61), we have
So for a.e. , there are and such that, for and ,
Since are tempered, the integral
is convergent. For any , there exists such that , and we have
Then by piecewise integration, we have
By differential mean value theorem, for each , there exists , such that
By the property of normal function, there exists , which just depends on , such that
It is easy to check that the series is convergent. Associating with (65)–(68), for any , we have
where
Therefore (64) and (69) imply that, for , the second term on the right-hand side of (59) can be bounded by
where . For being tempered, there exists such that, when ,
Letting and , when , we have

Now we let in (51), and we have
Employing Lemma 14, the bilinear term in (80) can be bounded by
The other terms are bounded by
Associating with all the above inequalities, we have
