This paper deals with the invariance of a measure on Sobolev spaces of low regularity under the flow of the cubic non linear wave equation on the unit ball of R³ under the assumption of spherical symmetry. It presents two aspects, an analytic one which includes the treatment of local properties of the flow, and a probabilistic one, which is mainly related to the global extension of the flow and the invariance of the measure.
