Global well-posedness of the MHD equations in a homogeneous magnetic field

Dongyi Wei and Zhifei Zhang

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 6, 1361–1406

We study the MHD equations with small viscosity and resistivity coefficients, which may be different. This is a typical setting in high temperature plasmas. It was proved that the MHD equations are globally well-posed if the initial velocity is close to 0 and the initial magnetic field is close to a homogeneous magnetic field in the weighted Hölder spaces. The main novelty is that the closeness is independent of the dissipation coefficients.
