Local wellposedness for the 2+1-dimensional monopole equation

Magdalena Czubak

Vol. 3 (2010), No. 2, 151–174
Abstract

The space-time monopole equation on 2+1 can be derived by a dimensional reduction of the antiselfdual Yang–Mills equations on 2+2. It can be also viewed as the hyperbolic analog of Bogomolny equations. We uncover null forms in the nonlinearities and employ optimal bilinear estimates in the framework of wave–Sobolev spaces. As a result, we show the equation is locally wellposed in the Coulomb gauge for initial data sufficiently small in Hs for s > 1 4.
