We present a general theory of stochastic model reduction which is based on a normal form coordinate transform method of A. J. Roberts. This nonlinear, stochastic projection allows for the deterministic and stochastic dynamics to interact correctly on the lower-dimensional manifold so that the dynamics predicted by the reduced, stochastic system agrees well with the dynamics predicted by the original, high-dimensional stochastic system. The method may be applied to any system with well-separated time scales. In this article, we consider a physical problem that involves a singularly perturbed Duffing oscillator as well as a biological problem that involves the prediction of infectious disease outbreaks.
