In this talk, we discuss a long-standing conjecture concerning shear-induced chaos in stochastically perturbed systems exhibiting a Hopf bifurcation. Using the recently developed theory of conditioned Lyapunov exponents on bounded domains, we reformulate the problem into the rigorous computation of eigenvectors of some elliptic PDEs, namely the Kolmogorov/Fokker-Planck equations describing distributions of the underlying stochastic process, and are thus able to prove that the first Lyapunov exponent is positive for certain parameter regimes.
