We consider the diffusion processes defined by stochastic differential equations when the noise is correlated. A functional method based on the Dyson expansion for the evolution operator, associated to the stochastic continuity equation, is proposed to obtain the Fokker–Planck equation, after averaging over the stochastic process. In the white noise limit the standard result, corresponding to the Stratonovich interpretation of the non-linear Langevin equation, is recovered. When the noise is correlated the averaged operator series cannot be summed, unless a family of time-dependent operators commutes. In the case of a linear equation, the constraints are easily worked out. The process defined by a linear Langevin equation with additive noise is Gaussian and the probability density function of its fluctuating component satisfies a Fokker–Planck equation with a time-dependent diffusion coefficient. The same result holds for a linear Langevin equation with a fractional time derivative (defined according to Caputo, Elasticità e Dissipazione, Zanichelli, Bologna, 1969). In the generic linear or non-linear case approximate equations for small noise amplitude are obtained. For small correlation time the evolution equations further simplify in agreement with some previous alternative derivations. The results are illustrated by the linear oscillator with coloured noise and the fractional Wiener process, where the numerical simulation for the probability density and its moments is compared with the analytical solution.
Stochastic equations are a basic tool to model physical and biological systems, since the addition of a noise term in deterministic dynamical models allows to take into account, in a phenomenological way, the coupling of neglected degrees of freedom or more generally the fluctuations of external fields, describing the environment. The simplest case to treat is the white noise, since the absence of correlations allows to simulate the system in a straightforward way and to write the parabolic Fokker–Planck equation, which governs the time evolution of probability density function (PDF). The functional method, where the Dyson expansion  and  for the evolution operator associated to the continuity equation is averaged, appears to be well suited to derive the Fokker–Planck equation in the case of white noise , ,  and . In any real process the noise is correlated and the white noise limit can be justified only if the decay of correlation is very rapid. If the noise has a dynamical origin (chaotic degrees of freedom) the memory effects are usually relevant and an adequate treatment is required. Memory effects have also been introduced by replacing the ordinary time derivative with a fractional derivative and the corresponding linear case will be considered. We propose to use the Dyson series  to analyze the evolution of the probability density for the process defined by a Langevin equation with correlated noise. The starting point is the continuity equation, which holds provided that the Langevin equation is an ordinary differential equation, for any realization of the noise. By averaging the Dyson series over the stochastic process we obtain an operator series whose resummation, whenever possible, leads to an evolution equation for the probability density. In the white noise limit the resummation process of the formal series expansion leads to the ordinary Fokker–Planck equation, which corresponds to the Stratonovich interpretation of the Langevin equation. When the noise is correlated an exact resummation cannot be achieved, unless a commutation condition is satisfied: in this case the PDF satisfies a generalized Fokker–Planck equation with a drift and a second-order integro-differential operator. For a linear Langevin equation with correlated noise the constraints on the coefficients imposed by the commutation condition are easily worked out. In the generic linear or non-linear case an approximate evolution equation for the PDF based on a small noise expansion is proposed. The additional expansion for small correlation time leads to a simplified equation, the same found by Risken  following a different procedure. The same approximation has been obtained by various authors using different methods , ,  and . The proposed method is applicable to any stochastic differential equation for which a continuity equation holds and allows to recover in a rather simple way the exact or approximate equations for the corresponding PDF, previously derived by other methods ,  and . Langevin equations with delay or a memory kernel require a different approach because the state at time t depends on the previous history of the system, preventing to write the continuity equation as a first-order partial differential equation. The only case of Langevin equations with a memory kernel, which can be treated is the linear case. Their treatment is the same which applies to any linear equation with a white or correlated noise. A stochastic process x, driven by η(t), solution of a Langevin equation with white noise, satisfies itself a Langevin equation with a white noise in an extended phase space (x,η) and the probability density ρ(x,t) is the marginal distribution of ρ(x,η,t), which satisfies the ordinary Fokker–Planck equation. Projection or continued fraction expansion methods  and  have been proposed to obtain the equation satisfied by ρ(x,t). The fluctuating part of the process χ=x−〈x〉 is Gaussian and its PDF View the MathML source satisfies a simple Fokker–Planck equation with a time-dependent coefficient. The equation satisfied by View the MathML source and the procedure to obtain it are usually more involved. Two examples of stochastic processes satisfying a linear Langevin equation are considered: the linear oscillator with a coloured noise and the fractional Wiener process. In the first example the analytical PDF and its moments are compared with the simulation. The action distribution and its moments are compared with the results obtained from the equation averaged over the angle , showing that they agree asymptotically for large t, according to the averaging theory ,  and . In the second example we consider the PDF and its moments for the fractional Wiener process and the fractional oscillator with white noise by comparing analytical results and simulation. In both cases an excellent agreement is found. The plan of the paper is the following: in Section 1 we set up the functional framework to analyze the stochastic process driven by a white or colored noise, in Section 2 we analyze the linear oscillator with correlated noise and in Section 3 we consider the fractional time linear Langevin equation.

We have provided a general functional framework to derive the evolution equation for the probability density corresponding to the Langevin equation with white and coloured noise. For the white noise the standard Fokker–Planck equation corresponding to the Stratonovich interpretation of the Langevin equation is recovered. For the correlated noise an exact parabolic equation can be written only if a commutation condition of a family of time-dependent operators is satisfied. For the linear case satisfying the commutation relation a Fokker–Planck equation holds. In the generic case an approximate equation holds for small noise amplitude, and it takes a simpler form for small correlation time. The fluctuating part of the solution of a linear Langevin equation with additive noise is Gaussian also when the ordinary time derivative is replaced by a fractional derivative and the distribution of the process including the mean component can be compared with the solution of the above mentioned equations. To this end we have considered the linear oscillator with a Uhlembeck noise and the fractional Wiener process. To conclude we can assess that the functional framework based on field theoretical techniques like the Dyson series, is quite general and easy to work out. The stochastic continuity equation, related to the previously considered stochastic Liouville equation , has a non-trivial probabilistic meaning on its own, which might be explored before the averaging process is carried out. Given a family of initial distributions with known weights, the stochastic continuity equation gives all the information on their time evolution, whereas the standard approach concerns only the mean.
