#### Abstract

We study stochastic partly dissipative lattice systems with random coupled coefficients and multiplicative/additive white noise in a weighted space of infinite sequences. We first show that these stochastic partly dissipative lattice differential equations generate a random dynamical system. We then establish the existence of a tempered random bounded absorbing set and a global compact random attractor for the associated random dynamical system.

#### 1. Introduction

Stochastic lattice differential equations (SLDE’s) arise naturally in a wide variety of applications where the spatial structure has a discrete character and random spatiotemporal forcing, called noise, is taken into account. These random perturbations are not only introduced to compensate for the defects in some deterministic models, but are also rather intrinsic phenomena. SLDE’s may also arise as spatial discretization of stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE’s); however, this need not to be the case, and many of the most interesting models are those which are far away from any SPDE’s.

The long term behavior of SLDE’s is usually studied via global random attractors. For SLDE’s on regular spaces of infinite sequences, Bates et al. initiated the study on existence of a global random attractor for a certain type of first-order SLDE’s with additive white noise on 1D lattice [1]. Continuing studies have been made on various types of SLDS’s with multiplicative or additive noise, see [2–7].

Note that regular spaces of infinite sequences may exclude many important and interesting solutions whose components are just bounded, considering that a weighted space of infinite sequences can make the study of stochastic LDE’s more intensive. More importantly, all existing works on SLDE’s consider either a noncoupled additive noise or a multiplicative white noise term at each individual node whereas in a realistic system randomness appears at each node as well as the coupling mode between two nodes. Han et al. initiated the asymptotic study of such SLDE’s in a weighted space of infinite sequences, with not only additive/multiplicative noise but also coefficients which are randomly coupled [8].

In this work, following the idea of [8], we will investigate the existence of a global random attractor for the following stochastic partly dissipative lattice systems with random coupled coefficients and multiplicative/additive white noise in weighted spaces: where ; (, are positive constants; is the coupling operator, , , , are random variables, and , are two-sided Brownian motions on proper probability spaces.

For deterministic partly dissipative lattice systems without noise, the existence of the global attractor has been studied in [9–13]. For stochastic lattice system (1.2) with additive noises, when , , for all , Huang [4] and Wang et al. [14] proved the existence of a global random attractor for the associated RDS in the regular phase space . In this work we will consider the existence of a compact global random attractor in the weighted space , which attracts random tempered bounded sets in pullback sense, for stochastic lattice systems (1.1) and (1.2). Here we choose a positive weight function such that . If , then contains any infinite sequences whose components are just bounded and . Note that when , our results recover the results obtained in [4, 14] while is reduced to the standard . Moreover, the required conditions in this work for the existence of a random attractor for system (1.2)-(1.1) in weighted space are weaker than those in .

The rest of this paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we present some preliminary results for global random attractors of continuous random dynamical systems in weighted spaces of infinite sequences. We then discuss the existence of random attractors for stochastic lattice systems (1.1) and (1.2) in Sections 3 and 4, respectively.

#### 2. Preliminaries

#### 3. Stochastic Partly Dissipative Lattice Systems with Multiplicative Noise in Weighted Spaces

This section is devoted to the study of asymptotic behavior for system (1.1) in weighted space . We first transform the stochastic lattice system (1.1) to random lattice system in Section 3.1. We then show in Section 3.2 that (1.1) generates random dynamical system in . Finally we prove in Section 3.3 the existence of a global random attractor for system (1.1).

Throughout the rest of this paper, a positive weight function is chosen to satisfy(P0) and for some positive constants and .

Define , and denote by the Borel -algebra on generated by the compact open topology (see [2, 15]) and the corresponding Wiener measure on . Defining on via for , then is a metric dynamical system.

Consider the stochastic lattice system (1.1) with random coupled coefficients and multiplicative white noise: where , ; with (, , ; are positive constants; are random variables on the probability space ; is a linear operator on defined by is a Brownian motion (Wiener process) on the probability space ; denotes the Stratonovich sense of the stochastic term.

For convenience, we first transform (3.1) into a random differential equation without white noise. Let then is an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process on that solves the following Ornstein-Uhlenbeck equation (see [2, 15] for details) where for , , and possesses the following properties.

and therefore
For any , , and for some
Also
It then follows that
For any compact set with , defining random variable via

Note that
multiplying (3.31) by and sum over results in
Applying Gronwall’s inequality to (3.33) we obtain that

It then follows that
For , applying Gronwall’s inequality to (3.41) on implies that
for some constant depending on , and thus
where is a constant depending on . Denote by , where with the norm . By (3.43), there exists a mapping such that , where is the solution of (3.28) on with . Since is dense in , the mapping can be extended uniquely to a continuous mapping .

For given and , for . There exist sequences , such that

Multiply equation (3.31) by and sum over , we obtain

In fact, for and , the solution of (3.9) for . In this case, function is continuous in ,, and measurable in , which implies that , is -measurable.

For and , the solution for . For any given , define , by
and write

Thus is -measurable. Observe also that is -measurable. Hence is -measurable. It then follows from (3.54) that is -measurable. Therefore, fix we have that is measurable in . The other statements then follow directly.

*Remark 3.5. *If , system (3.1) defines a continuous RDS over in both state spaces and .
