In this talk, we will present a probabilistic representation formula for the Navier-Stokes equations on compact Riemannian manifolds. Such a formula has been provided by Constantin and Iyer in the flat case. On a Riemannian manifold, there are several different choices of Laplacian operators acting on vector fields. We shall use the de Rham-Hodge Laplacian operator which seems more relevant to the probabilistic setting, and adopt Elworthy-Le Jan-Li’s idea to decompose it as a sum of the square of Lie derivatives. This is a joint work with Shizan Fang.
