The korteweg-de vries equation at H-1regularity

Tristan Buckmaster, Herbert Koch

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we will prove the existence of weak solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries initial value problem on the real line with H-1 initial data; moreover, we will study the problem of orbital and asymptotic Hs stability of solitons for integers s≥-1; finally, we will also prove new a priori H-1 bound for solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries equation. The paper will utilise the Miura transformation to link the Korteweg-de Vries equation to the modified Korteweg-de Vries equation.
