Solution globale des equations de Maxwell-Dirac-Klein-Gordon

  • Yvonne Choquet-bruhat


We prove the global existence on Minkowski space time of a solution of the Cauchy problem for the non linear system of coupled Maxwell, Dirac and Klein-Gordon equations, for small data with appropriate decay at space-like infinity. The method uses the conformal mapping of Minkowski space time onto a bounded open set of the Einstein cylinder.
