Flows can be defined for diffusions with sufficiently regular
coefficients. Using stochastic calculus one can decide whether or not a diffusion produces a symplectic flow. However, it is much easier for the flow of a diffusion to be weakly symplectic i.e. the associated symplectic form is invariant in some averaged sense. Iyer-Constantin Circulation Theorem is a stochastic analog of Kelvin's principle for Navier-Stokes Equation. With the aid of symplectic diffusions, one can produce various martingales associated with solutions to Navier-Stokes Equation.
