We study the initial-boundary value problem for the Fokker-Planck equation in an interval with absorbing boundary conditions. We develop a theory of well-posedness of classical solutions for the problem and also show that the resulting solutions decay exponentially for long times.

This is joint work with Hyung Ju Hwang and Juan J. L. Velazquez.
