We consider the following stochastic heat equation:
\partial_t u_t(x)=\partial_{xx}u_t(x)+\sigma(u_t(x))\dot{W}(t,x),
x\in(-\infty,\infty) or x\in[-1,1] with certain boundary conditions subject to initial data u_0(x). We will discuss how initial data and the noise term effect the behaviors of the solution. This is based on several different papers.
