Ju n 20 08 WELL-POSEDNESS OF THE SPATIALLY HOMOGENEOUS LANDAU EQUATION FOR SOFT POTENTIALS

Abstract

Abstract. We consider the spatially homogeneous Landau equation of kinetic theory, and provide a differential inequality for the Wasserstein distance with quadratic cost between two solutions. We deduce some well-posedness results. The main difficulty is that this equation presents a singularity for small relative velocities. Our uniqueness result is the… (More)
