Local Existence and Finite-time Blow-up in Multidimensional Radiation Hydrodynamics

We first prove the local existence of smooth solutions to the Cauchy problem for the equations of multidimensional radiation hydrodynamics which are a hyperbolic-Boltzmann coupled system. Then, we show that a smooth solution will blow up in finite time if the initial data are large. Moreover, the property of finite propagation speed is obtained simultaneously.
