We study the global existence of solutions to a two-component generalized Hunter–Saxton system in the periodic setting. We first prove a persistence result for the solutions. Then for some particular choices of the parameters (α, κ), we show the precise blow-up scenarios and the existence of global solutions to the generalized Hunter–Saxton system under proper assumptions on the initial data. This significantly improves recent results.
