Global existence for the euler-maxwell system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Euler-Maxwell system describes the evolution of a plasma when the collisions are important enough that each species is in a hydrodynamic equilibrium. In this paper we prove global existence of small solutions to this system set in the whole three-dimensional space, by combining the space-time resonance method (to obtain decay) and energy estimates (to control high frequencies). The non-integrable decay of the solutions makes it necessary to examine resonances within the energy estimate argument.
