We start by introducing a new definition of solutions to heat-based SPDEs driven by space-time white noise: SDDEs (stochastic differential-difference equations) limits solutions. In contrast to the standard direct definition of SPDEs solutions; this new notion, which builds on and refines our SDDEs approach to SPDEs from earlier work, is entirely based on the approximating SDDEs. It is applicable to, and gives a multiscale view of, a variety of SPDEs. We extend this approach in related work to other heat-based SPDEs (Burgers, Allen-Cahn, and others) and to the difficult case of SPDEs with multi-dimensional spacial variable. We focus here on one-spacial-dimensional reaction-diffusion SPDEs; and we prove the existence of a SDDEs limit solution to these equations under less-than-Lipschitz conditions on the drift and the diffusion coefficients, thus extending our earlier SDDEs work to the nonzero drift case. The regularity of this solution is obtained as a by-product of the existence estimates. The uniqueness in law of our SPDEs follows, for a large class of such drifts/diffusions, as a simple extension of our recent Allen-Cahn uniqueness result. We also examine briefly, through order parameters ∈1, ∈2 → 0 at different speeds. More precisely, it is shown that the ratio ∈2 / ∈1 1/4 determines the behavior as ∈1, ∈2 → 0.
