Abstract

The linear stability analysis of the inhomogeneous Ginzburg-Landau Equation with multiplicative noise shows that the shift of the symmetry breaking due to multiplicative noise increases with noise intensity, particularly for a small diffusion coefficient. Since the Ginzburg-Landau Equation is a time-dependent generalization of the Helmholtz Equation this approach can be also used for analysis of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in random media.
