The main focus of my dissertation is the qualitative and quantative behavior of stochastic Wave equations with cubic nonlinearities in two dimensions. I evaluated the stochastic nonlinear wave equation in terms of its Fourier coecients. I proved that the strong solution of that equation exists and is unique on an appropriate Hilbert space. Also, I studied the stability of N-dimensional truncations and give conclusions in three cases: stability in probability, estimates of L^p-growth, and almost sure exponential stability. The main tool is the study of related Lyapunov-type functionals which admits to control the total energy of randomly vibrating membranes. Finally, I studied numerical methods for the Fourier coecients. I focussed on the linear-implicit Euler method and the linear-implicit mid-point method. Their schemes have explicit representations. Eventually, I investigated their mean consistency and mean square consistency.
