Compensated integrability. Applications to the Vlasov–Poisson equation and other models in mathematical physics

Abstract : We extend our analysis of divergence-free positive symmetric tensors (DPT) begun in a previous paper. On the one hand, we refine the statements and give more direct proofs. Next, we study the most singular DPTs, and use them to prove that the determinant is the only quantity that enjoys an improved integrability. Curiously, these singularities are intimately related to the Minkowski’s Problem for convex bodys with prescribed Gaussian curvature. We then cover a list of models of mathematical physics that display a divergence-free symmetric tensor ; the most interesting one is probably that of nonlinear Maxwell’s equations in a relativistic frame. The case of the wave equation is the occasion to highlight the role of the positivity assumption. Last, but not least, we show that the Vlasov–Poisson equation for a plasma is eligible for our theory.
