The Yamada-Watanabe theorem for mild solutions to stochastic partial differential equations

Stefan Tappe

Full-text: Open access


We prove the Yamada-Watanabe theorem for semilinear stochastic partial differential equations with path-dependent coefficients. The so-called "method of the moving frame" allows us to reduce the proof to the Yamada-Watanabe theorem for stochastic differential equations in infinite dimensions.
